Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you're able to include only 1 line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In case the package which you've ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all our packages, you'll be able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs some module so as to run efficiently, we'll have it since our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
