Node.js is an innovative, event-driven I/O system used for Internet sites which support interactive communication. A few examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional system, which can have a considerable impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can insert the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to disable it if you do not need it any longer. You will also be given access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the platform once your dedicated server is up and running. Since Hepsia is really simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our super-powerful machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
