Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform designed for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other system, which can exert a serious influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
You can use Node.js with every hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an optimal solution for managing numerous real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will only need to indicate the folder path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is available in our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you host multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has assigned a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted independently and you’ll acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
