Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites since you're able to integrate just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan includes this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website require a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic site and offer hundreds of different options to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to work with every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You will be able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. In case you choose to use a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to be present on the server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any Perl app that you make or find on the Internet will function perfectly on our end.
