Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it surely does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a website at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support fast live communication.

If you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you use.
