Perl is a widely used computer language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you are able to integrate just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux shared web hosting packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the package that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are featured in all of the plans, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality to save time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module in order to operate properly, we'll have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
