Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system intended for Internet sites which support live communication. Some examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional platform, which can exert a tremendous effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which web hosting package you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to pick the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t want it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can get it with just a few clicks. In case you’d like to use it for several Internet sites, you can order more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as choosing the location of your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra fee in case you purchase any of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an intuitive interface, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is add the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
