Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform devised for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any other system, which can have a significant effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each web hosting plan offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to remove an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can activate Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for numerous websites and enjoy an exceptional performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and so on.
