Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, I/O system meant for sites that offer live communication. A few examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional system, which can exert a great influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting packages offered by us include Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to set the path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a pretty simple-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our packages and you can activate it with just several clicks. In case you want to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for each web-based application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not imposed a restriction on the number of instances that you can add, you can use the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point & click GUI, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t come across any difficulties while using the platform. You’ll just have to specify the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also designate a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is assembled. As Hepsia is really simple to work with, you’ll be able to do that without coming across any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
