Perl is a popular computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites because you can integrate only one line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Perl is available with all the Linux website hosting service that we provide and you will be able to execute any .pl file that you upload within your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. The latter will enable you to build an Internet site with all of the functions that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP can't offer. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our packages feature countless Perl modules which you'll be able to employ and you will see the complete list in your web hosting account along with the path which you need to use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. If you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job yet your package doesn't offer this feature, you will be able to include as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're able to employ every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up in your account. In case you want to use a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to to exist on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our vast library which includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl app that you make or find on the worldwide web will function perfectly on our end.
