Node.js is an innovative, event-driven I/O platform used for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional system, which can exert a serious impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with each and every shared web hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to turn off an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, as it is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages a perfect solution for managing different real-time script-based applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll just have to include the location of the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll have total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
