Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous I/O system built for sites that support live communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert an enormous effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select the number of instances that you want 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 type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, because it is available with each semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS hosting packages that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to restart any instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven apps at no extra cost in case you purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is specify the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of using Node.js right away. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
