Perl is a very popular programming language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you are able to include only 1 line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting packages as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the package which you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other apps written in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all of our packages, you are able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality 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 requires a particular module to function properly, we will have it as our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
