Learn more about the abilities of the Node.js instrument and how it could be used to enhance your web applications.
Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform used for websites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can exert an immense effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting
offered by us include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting 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 particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number designated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js app or check the running instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a pretty user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server
from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you will have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a few clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use this event-driven platform for any script-powered software app that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t put any restriction as to the amount of instances that you can activate, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t have any obstacles while working with the platform. You’ll simply need to indicate the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase one of our dedicated servers
for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you host lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or removed separately and you will acquire access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
