Perl is a widespread computer language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages out there because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you'll be able to integrate just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you don't need to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide various attributes to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up in your account. If you want to use a script that you have found online and it requires particular modules to to exist on the server, you'll be able to benefit from our vast library which includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any Perl app that you make or find on the Internet will work perfectly on our end.
