Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform built for websites which offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can have a serious impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All Linux website hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to choose the location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly easy-to-navigate GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and so on.
