Perl is a widespread scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line in your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with many other languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it's employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your website ask for a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will function efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and supply plenty of characteristics to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you won't encounter any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you are able to call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. When you download some application from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to use it no matter what modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. Using the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
