Perl is a widely used language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you're able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your website require a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic website and offer a huge selection of features to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to take advantage of any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make each .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 run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job that you can create in your account. Provided you want to employ a script that you've found online and it requires specific modules to to be available on your server, you are able to take full advantage of our vast library that includes over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you create or find on the web will function properly on our end.
