Perl is a popular computer language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you can integrate just a single line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
In case you get a Linux cloud hosting
from us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you'll be given access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the entire list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you have to use in order to access them. When you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll run properly no matter what modules it needs 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 certain time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to take advantage of every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job that you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to employ a script which you've found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you can take full advantage of our vast library which features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you create or find on the Internet will perform perfectly on our end.
