Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system meant for sites that offer interactive communication. A few instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional system, which can have a substantial influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting package you have picked during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you can specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to disable it if you no longer want it. You will also be given access to the output code with only a single mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or shut down independently and you can view your apps’ output with only several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each web app that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed any limitation as to the number of Node.js instances that you can create, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any impediments while working with the platform. You will only need to enter the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also designate a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you can see your applications’ output and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this platform as soon as your server is up and running. As Hepsia is rather easy to use, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
