Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform intended for Internet sites which offer live interaction. A few instances of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional system, which can have a substantial impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud website hosting plan you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it if you don’t require it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or terminated separately and you can view your applications’ output with only several clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for administering different real-time script-powered applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to do it. You’ll simply have to enter the path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
