Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system built for sites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site substantially. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can have a considerable impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with every hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and user-friendly. 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 VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since this platform is built into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are astonishingly powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you’ll obtain access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
