Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous input/output system designed for Internet sites which support live interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web 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 one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any other system, which can exert an immense impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting package you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it if you no longer want it. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can give you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface, you will have to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to stop/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to indicate the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
