Why is Perl a programming language selected for a lot of web developers?
Perl is a widespread programming language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages these days because it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our web hosting
plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your website demand a particular module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will work properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and supply various functions to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all of the packages, you will be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module so as to work efficiently, we will have it because our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
