Perl is a widely used programming language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages available as it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting
plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your website demand a particular module, for example, you don't need to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic website and provide plenty of characteristics to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're able to use every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers
that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make any .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. Provided you decide to use a script that you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl app that you create or find on the web will function properly on our end.
