Perl is a widely used scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it is employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your site ask for a particular module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply countless characteristics to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you can call any of them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to use it regardless of the modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you'll be able to select whether a certain script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. When you use the aforementioned option, your script can be run every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
