Perl is a powerful programming language which is regularly used for making CGI scripts along with various web-based applications. Among its major advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to execute multiple tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be performed, you're able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for a variety of purposes, that's why many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our cloud web hosting services as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you have purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're able to use any kind of tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save you time and effort, we've also set up several thousand modules that you can take advantage of. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need particular modules, in order to work efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, if a visitor performs a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you are able to select the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etcetera.
