Perl is a widely used language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you will be able to add just one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're able to use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we have also added several thousand modules which you can take advantage of. You can see the path to the library inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need specific modules, so as to operate effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you are able to choose the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
