Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system designed for websites that offer interactive communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional platform, which can have a great effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting plan you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it if you do not want it anymore. You will also be given access to the output code with only a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. Then, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can see the output of your apps with just a few clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no extra fee when you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/deactivate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is insert the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js momentarily. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
