Perl is a well-known language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you're able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic site and supply a huge selection of functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you will not experience any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you're able to call them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Any time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to use it no matter what modules it needs to work. Given that your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you'll be able to select whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the aforementioned option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
