Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites which support interactive communication. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any other system, which can have a serious influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared web hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s included with each semi-dedicated server package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view a given app’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for hosting multiple real-time script-powered applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You will only need to add the folder path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also choose a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the output of the apps and to reboot or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-based web apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as this platform is integrated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
