Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites since you're able to add just a single line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud web hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically using a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. If the plan which you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so when you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you're able to use any kind of custom or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also installed several thousand modules that you can employ. You will be able to see the path to the library inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, will need specific modules, so that they can work effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you will be able to select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once a day, hour, minute, etcetera.
