Perl is a widely used programming language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you are able to include only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting service through our company, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have numerous modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you will have access to more than 3000 modules that you can employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use to get access to them. Should you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll function properly whatever the modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your website hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you can include this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make each .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any 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 through a cron job that you can create inside your account. In case you decide to employ a script which you have found online and it needs certain modules to be present on your server, you will be able to take full advantage of our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl app that you write or find on the web will work perfectly on our end.
