Perl is a very popular language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you can add just a single line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
If you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are created. With every single plan, you will get access to over 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you'll find the entire list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use in order to be able to access them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run flawlessly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your website hosting package does not include cron jobs, you're able to add this option with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all our plans, you will be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module to work efficiently, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
