Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you'll be able to write only one line inside your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with numerous other languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a specific app can do, it is employed by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. If the plan which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and based on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job that you can create in your account. Provided you decide to employ a script which you have found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on the server, you will be able to take advantage of our vast library that includes over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any Perl app that you create or find on the Internet will perform properly on our end.
