Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven input/output platform meant for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other system, which can exert a considerable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have chosen during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can add the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to remove it in case you do not require it anymore. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated packages come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface, you will have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS that we are offering and you can configure it without having any problem, even if you have never used it before, because Hepsia offers an intuitive, point & click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will have to enter the location of the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one 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. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
