Perl is a widespread scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you are able to write just one line in your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a particular application can do, it is used by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our Linux shared web hosting services because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there whenever you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the package which you have selected doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all our packages, you're able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also use a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module to work effectively, we will have it as our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
