Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform designed for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site substantially. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any traditional platform, which can have a serious influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to suspend an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the event-driven platform is available in our custom-built tool. Since our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you use many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or canceled separately and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
