Find out more on the strength of Node.js and how it can help you with your next online app.
Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform meant for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can exert an immense impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud web hosting
plan that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to reboot each instance separately, if required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with just several mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server
that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal option for administering numerous real-time script-driven applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll only have to add the location of the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is really easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many instances as you like on our very powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
