Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output system devised for sites which support live communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional platform, which can exert a huge impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to access 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 will be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped independently and you can check your applications’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
You can get Node.js with any of the VPS services that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to cancel or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the platform once your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is pretty user-friendly, you’ll be able to make that without any complications, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP 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 set up as many instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
