Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you'll be able to write a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole program code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's employed by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish 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 site demand a particular module, for instance, you don't need to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different options to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated hosting that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make any .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up inside your account. If you decide to employ a script which you have found online and it requires specific modules to be present on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which features over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl app that you create or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
