Perl is a widely used language, that is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you'll be able to integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to 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 simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for example, you don't have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and offer plenty of attributes to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all of the plans, you are able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also use a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module to run properly, we'll have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
