Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you will be able to include only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your website demand a specific module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic site and supply numerous different features to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all plans, you can choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a particular module in order to operate effectively, we'll have it as our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
