Perl is a widely used programming language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you will be able to include only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your website ask for a specific module, for example, you will not have to worry whether they will run effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic site and supply various attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not experience any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call them by including the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to function. As long as your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can decide whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the second option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
