Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a site all at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is necessary.
