Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O platform designed for Internet sites which offer real-time communication. Several instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional platform, which can exert a huge influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it’s available with all our packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS services that we offer and you can activate it without having to cope with any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers a simple-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll have to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address 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 generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated hosting for your script-based software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since the platform is included in our custom tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you will enjoy stunning performance even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has designated a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or stopped independently and you will receive access to an in-depth output log for each application that uses Node.js.
