Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system used for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can have a substantial effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

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 wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP.
