Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output system meant for websites that support live interaction. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Several minutes later, you’ll be able to include the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down if you do not need it anymore. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with only a mouse click.
