Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform meant for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting
package that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is included with each package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. As Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulties, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our ultra-powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
