Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you will be able to include just a single line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task 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 too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your site ask for a specific module, for example, you won't have to worry if they will operate properly or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply various characteristics to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to take advantage of every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You're able to make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of 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 that you can create in your account. In case you decide to use a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to take full advantage of our vast library which features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any Perl app that you generate or find online will perform perfectly on our end.
