Perl is a powerful programming language that is frequently used for making CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based applications. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute various tasks and to enhance the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five tasks need to be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of including hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used in addition to other languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our cloud website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the plan which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to work with any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your website, or automatically via a cron job that you can set up in your account. Provided you want to employ a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any type of Perl app that you generate or find on the Internet will perform perfectly on our end.
