Perl is a popular language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you will be able to include just one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used 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 will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this feature. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and supply hundreds of different characteristics to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not experience any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you can call them by including the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to be executable, you can decide whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
