Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output platform meant for Internet sites that support interactive communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional platform, which can exert an immense influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting package that you use. You can make this 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 feature to your account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can get it with just a few clicks. In case you would like to use it for different websites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as including the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we’re offering and you can activate it without having any problem, even if you’ve never used it before, as Hepsia has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance offered by Node.js. You will have to include the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to add the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etc.
