Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform intended for sites which offer real-time communication. A few instances of such websites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the web 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 one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional platform, which can exert a serious influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you wish to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see a given app’s output or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect option for administering numerous real-time script-driven applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll just need to enter the location of the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to use one of our dedicated servers for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you use lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses Node.js.
