Perl is a widespread scripting language that is considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it features a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it's employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site demand a particular module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will run properly or not. In this way, you're able to make a dynamic website and offer hundreds of different attributes to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not have any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you're able to call any of them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. If you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you'll be able to use it regardless of the modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to decide whether a specific script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. Using the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
