Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you have purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers 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 selected. Any time you download some application from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it requires to function. Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you will be able to select whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. Using the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
