Perl is a popular computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you can integrate just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting services because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate 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've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all of the packages, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module to operate properly, we will have it because our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
