Linux instance has service called 'Forever' and Node.js installed for embedding videos. Service stops working, once we close our SSH session!

I'm running a Linux machine on the Amazon cloud. On this, we've installed Node.js and a service called Forever installed on it. The purpose is to embed videos, so that once the link of the video is inserted, then the entire video gets inserted onto the page. A bit like how facebook does it, when you post a link it grabs and embeds the video onto the page.
To do this, we needed to install Node.js and a service called Forever.
Whenever we use SSH on port 22, to log onto the server, the Forever service works and the embedding of videos work without any issues. The moment we close our SSH session, the entire links stop working which probably means that the forever service stops running.
Do any of you have any ideas how we could look into this or troubleshoot this?
