Perl is a popular computer language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you will be able to include only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will function effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer various options to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can work with any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated service that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You will be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up in your account. If you decide to use a script that you have found online and it needs certain modules to be present on the server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any Perl application that you write or find on the worldwide web will perform flawlessly on our end.
