Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser video games or live chat portals, for example, and many companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will go through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP.
