Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you can integrate only one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud web hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you're able to call any of them by including the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. If you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to select whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. When you use the aforementioned option, your script can be run every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
