Perl is a popular language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you will be able to include just a single line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our shared hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to create 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 in case you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you can use any custom or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save you time and effort, we have also included several thousand modules that you'll be able to employ. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, will need certain modules, so as to work efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor does a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you're able to choose the interval according to what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etcetera.
