Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional 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 a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a website all at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.

One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one.
