Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform built for websites that offer live interaction. A few instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional platform, which can exert an enormous influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you have picked during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to include the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you do not need it any longer. You will also acquire access to the output code with just a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal choice for managing multiple real-time applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will simply have to add the folder path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As Hepsia is quite intuitive, you will be able to do that without any difficulties, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert 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 Internet sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
