Perl is a widely used language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you can integrate only one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud web hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package which you have bought does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated service that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all the packages, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module to run properly, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
