Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform devised for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional platform, which can exert a tremendous influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting plans that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a really simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also set a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to check a given application’s output or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can activate it without needing to deal with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, since Hepsia has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You need to enter the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
