Perl is an effective programming language which is commonly used for making CGI scripts as well as various web-based applications. One of its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to do multiple tasks and to enhance the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. In other words, if five processess should be executed, you are able to employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for a variety of purposes, that's why many companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's ordinarily used with other languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will work effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of attributes to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based application for that matter, you won't encounter any kind 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'll be able to call each of them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it regardless of the modules it needs to function. As long as your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to decide whether a particular script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be run every day, hour or minute according to your preference.
