Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Provided you buy a website hosting service through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the entire list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use so as to be able to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will run perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your website hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all of the plans, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module in order to function effectively, we'll have it because our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
