Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output system built for sites which support real-time communication. A few instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates 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 instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can exert an enormous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the path to the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather intuitive GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, as it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or removed separately and you can check your apps’ output with only a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for any software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t imposed a limitation as to the amount of instances that you can run, you can use the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not experience any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to insert the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to shut down or to restart any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the directory path to the given .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 specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total number of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you will exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etcetera.
