Perl is an excellent programming language that's regularly used for creating CGI scripts as well as various kinds of web-based apps. Among its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to do numerous tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, if five processess need to be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of program code to call each one of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for numerous purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used along with other languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting service through us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are created. With each and every package, you'll get access to over 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you will find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use so as to access them. When you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll run properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you are able to include this option with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all plans, you're able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module to run effectively, we'll have it because our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
