Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform built for sites that offer real-time communication. A few instances of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other platform, which can exert a significant effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud plans
offered by our company support Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to set the exact location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port selected by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js application or check the output of the running instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans
that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-driven web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any restriction on the amount of instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any difficulties while using the platform. You’ll only need to add the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to view the output of your apps and to delete or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra charge in case you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans
and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-use interface, which will enable you to start/remove/restart any instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is define the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be set automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js immediately. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
