Perl is an effective programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts along with a number of web-based applications. One of its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to execute numerous tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, if five tasks have to be executed, you are able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for a number of purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's ordinarily used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our Linux shared hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to take advantage of any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your website, or automatically via a cron job which you can set up in your account. In case you want to employ a script which you have found online and it needs particular modules to be present on the server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl app that you make or find on the web will work properly on our end.
