Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you are able to integrate just a single line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux shared packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you've acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you can create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can use a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module to operate properly, we'll have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
