Perl is a widespread computer language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to add only 1 line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create many popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package that you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you can use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we have also added several thousand modules that you're able to employ. You will be able to see the path to the library in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need certain modules, so as to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, in case a visitor does a particular action on your website, or automatically, if you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you're able to select the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etc.
