Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform built for Internet sites that support live interaction. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other system, which can have an immense effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which shared hosting package you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to stop it in case you no longer need it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can activate it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for several sites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous sites and enjoy a fantastic performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, as this event-driven platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you manage many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or shut down independently and you’ll be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
