Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to add to your site demand a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will function effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide countless characteristics to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you aquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to use any kind of custom or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we have also installed several thousand modules that you'll be able to employ. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need particular modules, in order to work properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, when a visitor performs a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you can choose the interval according to what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etc.
