Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform used for websites that support real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web 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 one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional platform, which can have an enormous effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you have chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it if you no longer need it. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only a few clicks of the mouse. If you’d like to use it for multiple sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to deactivate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you do not have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform once your machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you will be able to make that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our very powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
