Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system built for sites that offer live communication. A few examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website substantially. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert a considerable effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All Linux website hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to pick the exact path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number specified by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using an amazingly easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it is is included with all our plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can view the output of your apps with just several mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
