Perl is a widespread computer language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you're able to integrate just a single line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create many popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
In case you buy a shared hosting through us, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the complete list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path which you have to use so as to access them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Perl is supported on all our servers, so when you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save your time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules that you'll be able to employ. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, require specific modules, in order to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, in case a website visitor performs a specific action on your site, or automatically, when you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
