Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box 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 handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can exert a great influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
All web hosting plans offered by our company include Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port assigned by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s available with each and every package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no additional fee if you order one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-use interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is enter the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
