Perl is an effective programming language which is widely used for setting up CGI scripts as well as a variety of web-based apps. Among its major pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to execute numerous tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, when five processess should be performed, you're able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a number of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used with other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your website require a particular module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and supply a huge selection of functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to employ every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your website, or automatically by a cron job that you can create inside your account. In case you want to use a script that you have found online and it requires specific modules to be present on your server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you make or find on the Internet will function perfectly on our end.
