Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages available because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you'll be able to add only 1 line of code to call a certain module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to add to your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic site and offer a huge selection of options to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are able to work with every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up inside your account. If you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it requires specific modules to to be available on the server, you will be able to take full advantage of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you write or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
