Perl is a popular language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you're able to add only one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this option. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website demand a particular module, for example, you do not have to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you are able to use any custom-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we have also installed several thousand modules which you will be able to employ. You can see the path to the library in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, require certain modules, in order to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, in case a visitor does a particular action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you will be able to choose the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
