Node.js is an advanced, event-driven input/output platform used for Internet sites that offer real-time communication. Some examples of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a substantial effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which shared website hosting package you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you no longer require it. You will also be given access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will need to enter the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a randomly generated port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra fee when you order any of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-use interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be designated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
