Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system devised for sites which offer live interaction. Some examples of such websites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can exert a great effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting offered by us support Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the path to your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number selected by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly easy-to-use interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it is available with all our plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will need to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a few clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an ideal option for running different real-time Internet apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You’ll only need to insert the location of the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a particular port number 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 applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etc.
