Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform meant for websites that offer live communication. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any traditional system, which can exert a significant influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to cancel it if you don’t require it any longer. You will also be given access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that Node.js can give you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect solution for building different real-time script-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You will just need to enter the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you can uncover its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll have complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etcetera.
