Perl is a widely used language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages out there as it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you're able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Perl is provided with all the cloud hosting that we offer and you can execute any .pl file which you upload within your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The latter will allow you to build an Internet site with all the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP cannot supply. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our plans include a large number of Perl modules that you're able to employ and you can see a full list in your hosting account in addition to the path which you need to use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job but your plan doesn't offer this feature, you will be able to add as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your website hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to employ any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You'll be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. Provided you want to employ a script which you have found online and it requires specific modules to to exist on the server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that every Perl app that you create or find on the web will function properly on our end.
