Perl is a very popular language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you will be able to include only one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to include in your site demand a certain module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and supply plenty of options to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't have any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you're able to call any of them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it regardless of the modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you can choose whether a specific script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the aforementioned option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
