Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites which support live communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can have a remarkable effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared plans that we offer support Node.js and you are able to add this innovative platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to select the exact location of your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port given by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, change the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a pretty easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you have added.
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 when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect option for administering numerous real-time script-driven web apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several mouse clicks to do it. You will only need to specify the path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. 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 apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the output of the applications and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra cost if you order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-use interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full potential of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
