Perl is an efficient programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts and various kinds of web-based applications. One of its main pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to do multiple tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, in the event that five processess should be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a large number of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for a variety of purposes, so many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's ordinarily used with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your website ask for a particular module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and supply a huge selection of characteristics to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can work with any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You're able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. In case you choose to employ a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to to exist on the server, you will be able to take advantage of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you generate or find on the worldwide web will function properly on our end.
