Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you are able to add only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site demand a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will work properly or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different characteristics to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all plans, you can pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module to operate efficiently, we will have it because our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
