Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O system meant for sites which offer live communication. A few examples of such websites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional platform, which can have an immense impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can set it up with only several clicks. If you wish to use it for different sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also designate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your apps with just a click.
