Why is Node.js so powerful? Why is it a fantastic choice for your next web application?
Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O system designed for sites that offer real-time communication. Some examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any other system, which can have a tremendous influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which shared web hosting
package you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also receive access to the output code with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server
that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions as to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal choice for setting up numerous real-time apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks to make this. You will simply have to add the folder path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is quite easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our exceptionally powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
