Perl is a very popular language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages these days since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting
packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan comes with this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website demand a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you're able to build a dynamic site and offer hundreds of different functions to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our packages, you are able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module to work properly, we will have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
