Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system intended for sites which support live communication. A few instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional system, which can exert a substantial effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use Node.js with each cloud website hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view the output of your applications with only several clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans a perfect choice for managing numerous real-time web-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to make this. You will simply have to specify the location of the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the applications’ output and to restart or to stop any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
