Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform designed for sites which offer live communication. A few examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one sizeable 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 info can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other system, which can have an enormous impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you can see your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra cost if you obtain any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an intuitive GUI, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is insert the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js momentarily. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
