Perl is a widespread computer language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you are able to add only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package includes this feature. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will run properly or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and supply countless functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You're able to use any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You are able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from your 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 your client performs on your site, or automatically via a cron job which you can set up in your account. Provided you choose to employ a script that you've found online and it needs particular modules to to exist on your server, you can reap the benefits of our vast library which features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you write or find on the web will perform flawlessly on our end.
