Perl is a popular language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages these days because it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you can integrate only one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the plan which you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are able to use any kind of custom or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we have also set up several thousand modules that you will be able to employ. You will be able to see the path to the library inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and add any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need to have specific modules, so that they can operate properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two ways - manually, in case a website visitor performs a certain action on your website, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you will be able to select the interval based on what your script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etcetera.
