Perl is a popular programming language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you can include only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the complete list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use to be able to access them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll run flawlessly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you are able to add this feature with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated servers that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all of our packages, you will be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module in order to run properly, we will have it as our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
