Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform meant for websites that support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other system, which can exert a serious impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve chosen at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you’ll be able to add the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to terminate it in case you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. If you want to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate interface that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use the platform for each script-driven web application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t imposed a limit on the number of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have any problems while working with the platform. You will just have to add the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to check your apps’ output and to shut down or to reboot any instance running on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite easy to use, you will be able to make that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
