Perl is a well-known language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages available because it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you can add just one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our cloud website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. In case the package that you've purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all plans, you can choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module in order to function efficiently, we will have it as our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
