Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform designed for sites which support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a substantial impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number set by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly user-friendly graphical interface.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty easy to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the location of 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 web sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our incredibly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
