Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform intended for Internet sites which support interactive communication. Several instances of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted 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 types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional platform, which can have a substantial effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud website hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any web-based app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not imposed a limitation as to the number of instances that you can activate, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t encounter any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will simply need to include the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you can see the output of your applications and to terminate or to restart any instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
