Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for Internet sites which support real-time communication. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted 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 entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a noticeable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared website hosting package that we offer, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to suspend an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for multiple web sites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as adding the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your running instances, to order new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can use this platform for each script-based web app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not put a restriction on how many instances you can use, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t encounter any problems while using the platform. You’ll just have to indicate the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can view the output of your apps and to delete or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. As Hepsia is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform 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 web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you want on our very powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
