Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of people are visiting a site all at once. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.

You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, if needed.
