Perl is a very popular scripting language that's considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific task that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write only one line inside your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's used by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud website hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you want to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply plenty of attributes to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job that you can create in your account. Provided you decide to use a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library which includes over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl application that you make or find on the worldwide web will perform flawlessly on our end.
