Perl is a widely used language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you are able to add just a single line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically via a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. In case the plan which you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file has the right executable permissions. With our shared plans, you are able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all our packages, you'll be able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module to function properly, we will have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
