Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in 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 a large number of users are using a site at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time communication.

One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one.
