Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system used for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional platform, which can have a serious impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting
plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server
from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll need to insert the location of 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 path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can see the output of your applications with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty simple to work with, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our incredibly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with ease.
