Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites as you are able to include just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and supply a huge selection of functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job which you can create in your account. If you want to employ a script that you've found online and it needs certain modules to to exist on your server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any Perl app that you create or find online will perform perfectly on our end.
