Perl is a widespread programming language, that is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages these days because it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites since you will be able to add just a single line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our cloud hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the package which you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to employ any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You'll be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up inside your account. In case you want to use a script which you have found online and it needs particular modules to to exist on the server, you are able to benefit from 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 work properly on our end.
