Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O system intended for sites that offer live interaction. Some examples of such websites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional platform, which can exert a serious effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared hosting
plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers
support Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface, you will need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers
that we are offering and you can configure it without having to cope with any problem, even if you have never used it beforehand, since Hepsia offers an intuitive, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many web applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You need to include the location of the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’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 create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered apps at no additional fee if you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers
and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-use GUI, which will permit you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be assigned automatically as well and you will notice the upsides of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
