Perl is a popular language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to integrate just one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our shared website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the package which you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. When you download some application from a third-party website, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to use it regardless of the modules it needs to work. Given that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to select whether a given script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
