Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O system designed for Internet sites that offer live communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the site and its users in little bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any other platform, which can have a considerable influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Website Hosting
When you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s needed.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
