Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a site simultaneously. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Several minutes later, you can specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it if you do not require it any longer.
