Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform meant for websites that offer real-time communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a remarkable effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to suspend an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web applications, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or deleted separately and you can view your applications’ output with just several clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal solution for hosting numerous real-time web-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll only need to specify the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to delete any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation on the total amount of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
