Why is Node.js so powerful? Why is it the best option for your next web application?
Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform designed for sites which support live communication. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the 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 one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can exert a remarkable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every shared web hosting
plan offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to order. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to view any given app’s output.
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, as it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you can see your apps’ output with just a couple of clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS hosting packages
that we offer and you can configure it without having any problem, even if you’ve never used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software apps as you want, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will have to include the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform once your server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to work with, you will be able to do that without encountering any predicaments, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you wish on our very powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
