Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you will be able to add only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the package which you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all our packages, you'll be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module in order to operate efficiently, we will have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to find 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.
