Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you're able to add only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our shared hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the plan which you have obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up inside your account. Provided you choose to employ a script which you have found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on your server, you are able to take full advantage of our rich library that includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl app that you create or find on the worldwide web will work perfectly on our end.
