Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system designed for websites which offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can have a noticeable impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our plans and you can order it with just several mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for different websites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy an exceptional overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to terminate or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software applications at no additional cost in case you buy any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will permit you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is define the location of the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js right away. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
