Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O platform built for websites that offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any other system, which can have a huge impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if it is necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will have to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or shut down independently and you can check the output of your apps with only several clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated service on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will have total command over them via 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, and so on.
