Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform used for Internet sites which offer live interaction. A few instances of such websites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one giant hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other system, which can have a noticeable impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every web hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a random port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for building numerous real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to insert the path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
