Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages these days as it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you are able to include only one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Provided you obtain a shared website hosting through us, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a lot of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the whole list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will function perfectly whatever the modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you can add this feature with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to employ every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up inside your account. If you decide to use a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to to be available on your server, you are able to take advantage of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any type of Perl application that you make or find online will perform properly on our end.
