Find out more about the capabilities of the Node.js software tool and how it could be used to enhance your web apps.
Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform meant for sites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other system, which can have an immense impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared hosting
plan offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to view 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 advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can see the output of your apps with only several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers
that we offer and you can configure it without the need to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it beforehand, because Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based software applications as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will need to specify the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra fee when you acquire any of our dedicated servers
and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is define the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be set automatically as well and you will see the benefits of using Node.js instantly. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
