Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you will be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
Provided you purchase a Linux hosting package
through our company, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use to get access to them. In case you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will work correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to add this feature with a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated packages
that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all of the plans, you will be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also use a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module in order to function properly, we'll have it because our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
