Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system used for sites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional system, which can have a great impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number set by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different Internet applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to add the path to 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 add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a few clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions as to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages a perfect solution for managing numerous real-time script-powered applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to specify the path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely easy to work with, you will be able to do that without having any predicaments, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address 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 unbelievably powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
