Perl is a widespread language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you're able to integrate only one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language often 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 is also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you obtain a Linux hosting through our company, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you will get access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to use in your scripts and you will find the entire list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you have to use to gain access to them. Should you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it will function correctly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you are able to add this option with just a few clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your website, or automatically via a cron job which you can set up inside your account. In case you decide to use a script that you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you are able to reap the benefits of our vast library which features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any Perl app that you generate or find on the Internet will perform properly on our end.
