Perl is a widespread language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you are able to include only one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with any of our cloud web hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the package that you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all the plans, you're able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module to work properly, we will have it as our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
