Perl is a very popular language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you will be able to include just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a number 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 Cloud Hosting
You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our cloud hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there every time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you've purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you will not have any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call any of them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. When you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it regardless of the modules it needs to function. Provided that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to choose whether a particular script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
