Perl is a popular language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages these days as it supports the use of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you will be able to include just one line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate many popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting service because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you'll be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the semi-dedicated service that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all our packages, you can pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to run effectively, we'll have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to see the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
