Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you are able to add only one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux cloud packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you have picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all our packages, you'll be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module so as to function effectively, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
