Perl is a popular language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites because you'll be able to include only one line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example 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

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site demand a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of options to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all our servers, so when you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules that you're able to use. You can see the path to the library inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need specific modules, so as to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, in case a visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you are able to select the interval based on what the script will do and how often you want it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
