Perl is a very popular computer language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you can integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting package through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules which you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find a full list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use in order to get access to them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it'll run properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll be able to use any kind of custom or ready-made CGI script or any other Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save your time and efforts, we have also added several thousand modules which you're able to use. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need particular modules, to work effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, when a visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you're able to choose the interval based on what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etc.
