Perl is an efficient programming language that's widely used for creating CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. Among its key advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform various tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you can use five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for multiple purposes, so a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud web hosting service because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the plan which you have acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply can run CGI scripts or any other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all the plans, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to operate efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
