Perl is a widespread computer language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you'll be able to integrate just one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Provided you acquire a Linux shared website hosting package through us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use so as to get access to them. When you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will work perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to add this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all our plans, you are able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs some module in order to operate properly, we'll have it because our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
