Perl is a well-known language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you will be able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from 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 add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all the plans, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module to function effectively, we will have it as our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
