Perl is an effective programming language which is regularly used for creating CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. One of its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to do numerous tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five tasks need to be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for a number of purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to add to your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic site and offer numerous different attributes to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to take advantage of every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job that you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it needs certain modules to be present on the server, you will be able to benefit from our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl app that you create or find online will perform flawlessly on our end.
