Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O system meant for websites which support real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert a tremendous impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the location of the .js application or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a very user-friendly graphical interface.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for each script-driven software application that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed any restriction on the number of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You will only have to add the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can view your applications’ output and to terminate or to reboot any instance hosted on the VPS server.
