Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you'll be able to add just a single line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the plan that you've picked does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of our packages, you'll be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can use a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module in order to function efficiently, we will have it since our library contains both popular 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 the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
