Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output system designed for websites that offer interactive communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively compared to any conventional platform, which can have a remarkable impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, if it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is included in our in-house built tool. As our servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll get stunning performance even if you use multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you will have access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
