Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven input/output system designed for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional platform, which can exert an immense influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only several clicks. If you’d like to use it for multiple websites, you can order more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as entering the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS hosting plans offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered applications at no additional fee if you order any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a user-friendly GUI, which will permit you to start/delete/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is include the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the benefits of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
