Perl is a popular language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to add only one line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
Provided you buy a web hosting from us, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use in order to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you'll be able to add this attribute with a few clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of our plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can use a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module in order to function properly, we'll have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
