Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages these days as it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you will be able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you're able to employ in your scripts and you will find the entire list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use so as to get access to them. In case you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run correctly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you're able to include this option with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based application for that matter, you will not encounter any problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you can call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some app from a third-party site, for example, you can be sure that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it needs to function. Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to decide whether a certain script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
