Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system meant for Internet sites which support interactive communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional platform, which can have an immense effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with each web hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a terrific performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
