Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time browser games or live chat software, for example, and numerous corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

You can select 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 appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.
