Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase a shared plan
through our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll get access to over 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you will find the full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you have to use so as to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .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. In case your web hosting plan does not come with cron jobs, you'll be able to include this option with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're able to work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated plans
that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You can make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can set up inside your account. In case you want to employ a script which you have found online and it needs particular modules to to exist on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you make or find online will work perfectly on our end.
