Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you're able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create many popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our Linux shared website hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the plan that you've purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all our plans, you can pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module in order to operate properly, we'll have it as our library contains 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 the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
