Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you're able to add only 1 line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to add to your site ask for a specific module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will function properly or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of functions to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you can use any tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we have also included several thousand modules that you can take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and add any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, will need certain modules, so that they can function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, is possible in two ways - manually, in case a website visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you're able to select the interval based on what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etcetera.
