Perl is a widespread language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages nowadays as it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan has this feature. If not, you can include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic site and offer hundreds of different characteristics to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all plans, you'll be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module to operate properly, we will have it since our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
