Perl is a widespread computer language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you will be able to include only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you want to include in your site demand a certain module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply hundreds of different options to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't encounter any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. When you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to choose whether a given script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the second option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
