Discover more about the abilities of the Node.js tool and how it could be used to enhance your web applications.
Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system built for Internet sites that support live interaction. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website substantially. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can exert a considerable impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting
package that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server
account, since the platform is offered with all our plans and you can add it with only several mouse clicks. If you want to use it for different sites, you can order more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to add new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS plans
that we’re offering and you can configure it without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll have to specify the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is pretty easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any problem, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you like on our really powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
