Perl is a powerful programming language which is widely used for making CGI scripts and many different web-based apps. One of its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to perform a variety of tasks and to extend the performance of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, if five jobs have to be executed, you are able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a certain module, for example, you don't need to worry whether they will run effectively or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic website and supply plenty of options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically via a cron job that you can set up inside your account. In case you decide to use a script that you've found online and it needs certain modules to be present on your server, you are able to benefit from our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any Perl application that you generate or find on the worldwide web will perform properly on our end.
