Perl is a very popular computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to integrate just a single line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to add to your site demand a specific module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic site and supply plenty of characteristics to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based app for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call any of them by adding the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some application from a third-party website, for instance, you can rest assured that you'll be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to function. As long as your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you'll be able to choose whether a certain script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. Using the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute according to your preference.
