Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform used for websites that support live interaction. A few instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can have a noticeable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud plans that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to select the location of your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js app or view the active instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a really user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with only several mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for different sites, you can enable more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as including the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also designate a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web apps at no additional cost if you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-use interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is specify the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically too and you will see the advantages of running Node.js momentarily. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
