Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform designed for Internet sites which support live communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their 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 as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can have a remarkable influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which web hosting plan you have chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you don’t want it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.
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 offers, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be restarted or removed independently and you can view the output of your apps with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is offered by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal solution for setting up multiple real-time script-based applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You will only have to indicate the path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a given port number 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 apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you run multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deleted separately and you’ll be provided with access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
