Perl is a well-known language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites because you'll be able to integrate only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux cloud website hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. In case the package that you've selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all our servers, so if you aquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll be able to use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also installed several thousand modules that you are able to use. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and add any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, will need particular modules, to work properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two ways - manually, when 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 are able to select the interval based on what the script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
