Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites since you are able to include only one line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your site demand a particular module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will work properly or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and offer plenty of options to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based application for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you can call each of them by including the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Any time you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to function. Provided that your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to be executable, you are able to select whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
