Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from 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 can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of functions to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job that you can create inside your account. In case you want to employ a script which you have found online and it needs particular modules to to exist on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our vast library which includes more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you generate or find on the web will function properly on our end.
