Perl is a widespread programming language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you can add just a single line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our shared web hosting packages because 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 custom-made or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the package that you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the semi-dedicated packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all the plans, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module in order to operate efficiently, we will have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
