Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you're able to integrate only one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the package that you've acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all of the plans, you are able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module so as to function efficiently, we will have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
