Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you can include only one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux cloud packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan which you've picked does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job which you can create in your account. Provided you want to employ a script which you've found online and it requires certain modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to benefit from our rich library which features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any type of Perl application that you create or find on the worldwide web will function flawlessly on our end.
