Perl is a widely used language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you're able to integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux shared website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package which you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you'll be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all of our packages, you can select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features so as to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module so as to function effectively, we'll have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to view the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
