Perl is a well-known language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites because you can add only one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

In case you purchase a Linux hosting package through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules that you're able to use in your scripts and you can find the whole list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. When you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll work correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your web hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you can include this attribute with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you'll be able to decide whether a given script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. With the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
