Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform devised for sites that support live communication. Several examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any conventional system, which can exert a significant influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan offered by our company, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to remove an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will need to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS
You can get Node.js with each of the Linux VPS that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a great performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform once your physical machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to work with, you will be able to do that without coming across any predicaments, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our really powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
