Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are navigating a website at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.

Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files.
