Perl is a popular computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages these days because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites because you are able to integrate just one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will 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 comes with this option. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your site demand a certain module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of functions to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so when you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web application without difficulty. To save you time and efforts, we've also added several thousand modules that you can take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, require certain modules, to operate efficiently. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two separate ways - manually, if a visitor performs a particular action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you will be able to choose the interval based on what the script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
