Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform intended for websites that support live interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other system, which can have a considerable influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

You will be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one app 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 hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if necessary.
