Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system designed for sites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant hunk of information to the 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 box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional platform, which can exert a serious influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, as it is is included with all our plans and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for different web apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can see the output of your apps with just several clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select 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 too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the location of the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limit as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etcetera.
