Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to add just a single line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In case the plan which you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't experience any kind of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call any of them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a given script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
