Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan has this feature. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will run efficiently or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic website and provide countless features to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You're able to work with any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up inside your account. If you decide to use a script that you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any Perl app that you make or find on the web will function flawlessly on our end.
