Perl is a very popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific process which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line within your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports numerous other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a particular app can do, it is employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to include in your website demand a particular module, for example, you won't have to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic site and supply countless options to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't have any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you can call any of them by including the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Any time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you are able to select whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
