Perl is a widely used scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the support for modules - sets of commands for a specific job that can be included in a script by calling them which means that you can write just a single line in your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it's used by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to include in your site demand a particular module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply countless functions to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not experience any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you will be 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 website, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to work with it regardless of the modules it requires to work. Given that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you'll be able to decide whether a given script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. When you use the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute according to your preference.
