Perl is a well-known programming language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you are able to integrate just one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our website hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the package which you have purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our plans, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module so as to work effectively, we will have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
