Perl is a widespread language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you are able to add only 1 line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the process 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, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages
as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In case the package which you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you obtain a semi-dedicated server
account through our company, you'll be able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we have also installed several thousand modules which you'll be able to employ. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, will need certain modules, to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, if a website visitor does a particular action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you can select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once a day, hour, minute, etc.
