Perl is an efficient programming language that is widely used for making CGI scripts along with different web-based applications. One of its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute various tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five processess should be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for a variety of purposes, that's why a number of companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
Provided you buy a cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to use in your scripts and you will find the full list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to gain access to them. Should you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you're able to include this feature with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all of our packages, you can choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can use a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a particular module in order to function properly, we will have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
