Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform built for websites which support live interaction. Some examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site substantially. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any other platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud website hosting package you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you no longer want it. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy an astonishing performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.
