Perl is a well-known language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages available as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you are able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to add to your site demand a particular module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to make a dynamic website and supply plenty of functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to take advantage of any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make any .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up inside your account. If you choose to employ a script which you've found online and it requires certain modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you create or find on the web will work flawlessly on our end.
