Perl is a widespread programming language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you'll be able to integrate only one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You are able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our Linux website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. If the plan which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to work with any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make any .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to use a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to to be available on your server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you create or find on the Internet will work flawlessly on our end.
