Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system built for Internet sites that offer real-time communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting package you have chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to cancel it in case you no longer require it. You’ll also have access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface, you’ll need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages an ideal solution for administering multiple real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to include the path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and so on.
