Perl is a popular language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you're able to include just a single line of program code to call a specific 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 employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with any of our shared hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the plan which you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you aquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're able to use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and effort, we have also added several thousand modules that you are able to take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need to have specific modules, in order to operate properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two separate ways - manually, in case a website visitor performs a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you are able to select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
