Perl is a well-known computer language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your website demand a specific module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic Internet site and supply various attributes to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so if you aquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to use any custom or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we've also added several thousand modules that you will be able to employ. You will be able to see the path to the library inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need particular modules, to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, if a visitor performs a specific action on your website, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you are able to choose the interval depending on what the script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etcetera.
