Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform intended for websites that support interactive communication. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting offered by us include Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very simple-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of each of your applications or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total number of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
