Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform devised for sites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively compared to any traditional system, which can exert a noticeable impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting
plan you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to add the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you no longer need it. You will also gain access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server
that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect solution for hosting numerous real-time script-driven applications and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to do it. You will simply have to include the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your machine is assembled. As Hepsia is exceptionally user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any complications, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js without any effort.
