Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you are able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you don't need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer numerous different attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job which you can set up inside your account. If you choose to employ a script which you've found online and it needs specific modules to be present on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you generate or find on the Internet will function perfectly on our end.
