Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform used for Internet sites that offer live interaction. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional system, which can exert a significant influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each and every web hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to view 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 offers, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting service that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for any web-based application that you run on the VPS. Since we have not imposed any limit as to the number of Node.js instances that you can run, you can take advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any obstacles while working with the platform. You will only have to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also designate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you can check your applications’ output and to stop or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is set up. As Hepsia is really easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many instances as you like on our exceptionally powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
