Perl is an effective programming language which is widely used for making CGI scripts and various web-based applications. One of its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to perform various tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, when five jobs should be executed, you can employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for many different purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used with other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your site demand a certain module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic site and provide numerous different functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't experience any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our machines and you'll be able to call each of them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. When you download some app from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to use it no matter what modules it needs to work. Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you're able to choose whether a certain script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. Using the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
