Perl is an effective programming language that's widely used for setting up CGI scripts and also many different web-based applications. One of its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to do numerous tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess need to be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for various purposes, so a number of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used with other languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan has this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site demand a particular module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and offer various attributes to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not encounter any problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you are able to call any of them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, 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 have the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you're able to decide whether a given script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
