Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system meant for sites that support real-time interaction. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional system, which can have a significant effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and many others.
