Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system designed for sites which support live communication. Some examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one giant hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any other platform, which can have an immense influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud website hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it with just a few clicks. If you wish to use it for several sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of this platform as soon as your server is assembled. Since Hepsia is extremely simple to use, you will be able to make that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you need on our stunningly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
