Perl is an effective programming language which is commonly used for making CGI scripts as well as a number of web-based apps. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform multiple tasks and to extend the performance of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, when five tasks need to be performed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for various purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used in addition to other languages for example PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
In case you purchase a Linux cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you can find the whole list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use to gain access to them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will work properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you're able to add this option with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're able to use any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You're able to make any .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from your 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 the client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. If you want to employ a script that you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on the server, you'll be able to take full advantage of our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any kind of Perl application that you write or find on the web will function properly on our end.
