Using Node JS a web server can be created. The advantages of Node JS are that it is event-driven and would not wait for the response of the previous call. It moves to the next call and takes advantage of events to get notifications when a response is received for a previous call. The servers built on Node JS are very fast and do not use buffering and transfer chunks of data. In addition to this, it is single-threaded with event looping which is used in a non-blocking way. The HTTP module can help in creating a server by using the createServer() method. This method is executed whenever someone tries to access port 8080. In response to this, the HTTP server should display HTML and should be included in the HTTP header. It can be installed easily by typing ‘npm install -g HTTP-server’ and it can be started by typing the HTTP-server command.

Businesses use GoDaddy to host websites and register domain names on the Internet. Their back-end infrastructure is dependent on Node.js. Senior Software Developer Stephen Commisso maintains this is because of its ability to make quality apps and release new features quickly. In addition, Node.js is practical for testing, NPM resources, and REST. Representational State Transfer (REST) defines standards between computer systems and web services, a powerful feature for GoDaddy developers.
