Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform used for Internet sites that offer real-time communication. Several instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can have a serious impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each website hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can view the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is integrated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you’ll be given access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
