Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you will be able to add just one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux website hosting packages as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically via a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. If the plan that you have picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are able to work with any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You'll be able to make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it through the 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 the client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. If you choose to employ a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on the server, you're able to take advantage of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you write or find on the web will work properly on our end.
