Find out more about the abilities of the Node.js software tool and how it could be used to boost your web applications.
Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform meant for websites which support interactive communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the 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 Website Hosting
All shared website hosting plans
that we’re offering support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, change the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a rather easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can get Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans
that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory 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 randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple websites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your server is set up. Since Hepsia is really easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
