Find out more about the capabilities of the Node.js instrument and how it could be used to enhance your web apps.
Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system meant for Internet sites that offer live communication. A few examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive 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 writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a noticeable impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting
plan you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not need it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans
come with Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a random port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to stop/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server
that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions concerning the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for administering numerous real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You will simply need to enter the path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to stop any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our stunningly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
