Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you're able to add only one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to include in your website require a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and offer countless features to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're able to take advantage of every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You can make each .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically through a cron job which you can set up in your account. If you decide to use a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to be present on the server, you will be able to take full advantage of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl app that you make or find on the web will work perfectly on our end.
