Learn more about the capabilities of the Node.js tool and how it could be used to boost your web applications.
Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform meant for sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When 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 the entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can have a considerable effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All Linux cloud hosting
that we offer come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port designated by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js app or view the active instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, since it comes with each plan offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting
offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your physical machine is up and running. As Hepsia is really user-friendly, you will be able to make that without having any difficulty, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the 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 one or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many instances as you like on our extremely powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without efforts.
