Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform used for websites which support interactive communication. Several instances of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a serious influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to stop 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 advantages that the Node.js platform offers, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management 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 amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you will have to specify the location of 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 order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can see the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS packages offered by us and you can activate it without coming across any problem, even if you have not used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You need to define the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you will be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since this event-driven platform is available in our custom tool. Since our servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll enjoy superb results even if you host many Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has specified a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will be given access to a detailed output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
