Why is Perl a programming language of preference for many developers?
Perl is a widespread language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting
packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website demand a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of options to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated servers
that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and since cron jobs are featured in all packages, you are able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module in order to function effectively, we will have it because our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
