Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system used for Internet sites that offer real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can have a remarkable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting package you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to define the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP to gain 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 can reboot an instance or to disable it in case you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI, 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 cloud platform will designate a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations as to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for hosting different real-time script-driven applications and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons without any prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply need to add the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the applications’ output and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is rather user-friendly, you will be able to make that without experiencing any problem, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you like on our powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
