Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, I/O system meant for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Several instances of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other system, which can have a serious impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which website hosting plan you have chosen during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to terminate it if you do not want it any longer. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-powered web application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a limit as to how many instances you can set up, you can use the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not come across any problems while working with the platform. You will only need to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you will be able to see your apps’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra charge when you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is add the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
