Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you're able to include only 1 line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will operate properly or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of features to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're able to work with any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job which you can create in your account. Provided you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to be present on the server, you can benefit from our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you create or find online will perform perfectly on our end.
