Perl is a very popular language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you can integrate only 1 line of code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you obtain a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you'll find the entire list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path which you should 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 be sure that it'll function properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your website hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to use any custom or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also added several thousand modules which you can employ. You can see the path to the library inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, require specific modules, so that they can function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, when a website visitor performs a particular action on your site, or automatically, if you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can select the interval based on what the script will do and how often you'd like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
