Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform intended for websites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any other system, which can have a tremendous impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down if you don’t need it any longer. You will also have access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered applications at no additional fee if you get one of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an intuitive graphical interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to set it up is define the directory path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically too and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js right away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
