Perl is a well-known programming language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you will be able to add just one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our Linux hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to work with any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You will be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically via a cron job that you can create inside your account. In case you want to employ a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on your server, you'll be able to take full advantage of our vast library that features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl app that you create or find online will perform flawlessly on our end.
