Perl is a well-known computer language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you will be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux shared hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the plan that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via 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 the site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create in your account. If you want to employ a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to to be available on your server, you can take full advantage of our vast library which features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any kind of Perl application that you write or find on the web will perform flawlessly on our end.
