Perl is a widespread computer language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you can integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language generally used for scripts, but it's 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 such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our Linux website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. If the plan that you have acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to employ any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. Provided you want to use a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to to exist on the server, you will be able to take advantage of our rich library which features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any type of Perl application that you make or find on the Internet will work perfectly on our end.
