Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you're able to include only one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

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

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all of the plans, you'll be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module in order to function effectively, we'll have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
