Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform built for sites that support real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform 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 Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or terminated separately and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional charge in case you get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will permit you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you need to do to set it up is indicate the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js right away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
