Perl is a powerful programming language that's frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and also different web-based applications. Among its key pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to perform a variety of tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, in the event that five processess need to be executed, you are able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a number of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used along with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our web hosting plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In case the plan that you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to employ every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated plans that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your 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 your client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job which you can create in your account. In case you choose to use a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to benefit from our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you make or find on the web will work perfectly on our end.
