Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system devised for sites that offer live communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk 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 one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional platform, which can exert a tremendous impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Website Hosting
If you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance separately, if required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated services include Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any script-driven web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a limitation on how many instances you can activate, you can make full use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point & click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t experience any obstacles while working with the platform. You’ll only have to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click, you can check your apps’ output and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated web hosting for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is built into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will get superb results even if you host numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or removed separately and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
