Perl is a popular language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites because you can include only 1 line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux website hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. If the plan that you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our packages, you are able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module to work efficiently, we will have it because our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
