Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages available because it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites since you will be able to integrate only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

If you acquire a Linux website hosting from our company, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a large number of modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the whole list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you should use so as to get access to them. Should you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you'll be able to include this option with just a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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