Why is Perl a language preferred for a large number of developers?
Perl is a popular language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you are able to include only one line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting
plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will function properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and offer numerous different options to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the semi-dedicated hosting
that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our plans, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module so as to run properly, we'll have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
