Perl is an efficient programming language that's frequently used for setting up CGI scripts along with a number of web-based apps. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform numerous tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks have to be performed, you can use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for a number of purposes, so a wide range of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used along with other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Provided you acquire a cloud website hosting through our company, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to access them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it will function properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your website hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you're able to include this option with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to work with any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You'll be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job that you can create in your account. Provided you want to employ a script that you've found online and it requires specific modules to be present on the server, you can reap the benefits of our vast library that features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any Perl application that you make or find online will function perfectly on our end.
