Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages these days because it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you will be able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our cloud hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package which you have ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you won't experience any sort of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our machines and you will be able to call them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. If you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to work. Given that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you will be able to select whether a specific script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
