Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output platform designed for websites that offer interactive communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the site considerably. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other platform, which can have a considerable effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can order it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for multiple sites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as choosing the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for plenty of websites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to enter the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
