Perl is a widely used programming language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you can integrate just a single line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules present on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you will find the entire list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use so as to get access to them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will run perfectly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your web hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you can add this option with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to employ every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You are able to make any .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job which you can create in your account. If you choose to employ a script which you have found online and it needs particular modules to be present on the server, you're able to take advantage of our rich library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any type of Perl application that you create or find online will function properly on our end.
