Perl is a popular computer language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages out there because it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you're able to add just a single line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan comes with this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site require a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will work effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply hundreds of different attributes to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all plans, you can choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module to work efficiently, we will have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
