Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you will be able to integrate just one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create many popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your site demand a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will function properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and supply countless attributes to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you will not experience any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call any of them by including the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Any time you download some application from a third-party website, for example, you can be sure that you'll be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to function. Given that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you're able to decide whether a particular script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the aforementioned option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
