// Setting up PORT 
const PORT = process.env.PORT || 3000; 
    
// Creating http Server 
var httpServer = http.createServer(
  function(request, response) { 
  
  // Getting request path
  // by using request.path
  const value = request.path;
  console.log("Request URL: ", request.url)
    
  // Display result
  response.end( "request path : " + value, 'utf8', () => { 
    console.log("displaying the result..."); 
  
    httpServer.close(() => {
        console.log("server is closed")
    })
  }); 
});
