Perl is a widely used computer language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you can integrate just a single line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux shared website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two 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've acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you can pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module so as to run efficiently, we'll have it as our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
