Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system built for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site considerably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional system, which can exert a huge influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can see the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no extra charge if you buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate interface, which will allow you to start/stop/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be set automatically too and you will see the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
