Perl is a well-known language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you will be able to include just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our hosting plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the package that you have bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated plans that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all packages, you can select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a certain module so as to function efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
