Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform built for sites which support live interaction. Some examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any other platform, which can exert a remarkable impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have picked upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to cancel it if you don’t need it anymore. You will also be given access to the output code with just a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can set it up without the need to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You need to define the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the event-driven platform as soon as your server is up and running. As Hepsia is amazingly easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without any problems, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our very powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
