Perl is a widely used language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you are able to include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Perl is provided with all of the cloud web hosting that we supply and you will be able to execute any kind of .pl file which you upload within your account when you use the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP program. This will enable you to create a site with all the characteristics that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to offer. You'll be able to execute a script either manually or automatically with a cron job. Our plans feature a large number of Perl modules that you can employ and you will see the complete list in your hosting account as well as the path that you need to use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script using a cron job but your plan doesn't offer this option, you'll be able to include as many cron jobs as you need via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our packages, you are able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features so as to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module to function effectively, we'll have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
