Perl is a well-known computer language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you will be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety 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 Website Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with any of our Linux website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. If the plan that you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You'll be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically by a cron job which you can create inside your account. In case you choose to use a script that you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you will be able to benefit from our vast library that includes more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you create or find on the web will function perfectly on our end.
