Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform used for sites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any traditional platform, which can have a considerable effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, because it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or terminated independently and you can see your applications’ output with only a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any web-based app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put any limit on the amount of Node.js instances that you can use, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t have to cope with any difficulties while using the platform. You will just have to specify the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also specify a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to deactivate or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use the event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. As Hepsia is really simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you like on our really powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js without any effort.
