Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O system built for websites which offer real-time communication. A few instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any conventional system, which can have a substantial influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would 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 define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will choose a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of any of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS service that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-powered software application that you host on the VPS. As we have not set any limitation as to how many Node.js instances you can get, you can use the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll just have to indicate the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also designate a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you can view the output of your applications and to remove or to reboot any instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated service for your script-powered web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as the platform is incorporated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will get great results even if you run a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or removed separately and you will have access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
