Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform built for sites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the website and its users in little bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive 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 types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other platform, which can exert a substantial influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Website Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which website hosting plan you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to indicate the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s is included with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll need to specify 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 add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a couple of clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting service that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple websites and enjoy a fantastic performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to terminate or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated service for your script-powered software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since this event-driven platform is included in our custom-developed tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will be given access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
