Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you will be able to add only one line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux shared hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based app for that matter, you won't experience any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you are able to call them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you can select whether a particular script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. Using the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
