Perl is a very popular computer language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages out there because it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you will be able to include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our shared hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the package which you've purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

You're able to work with any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You're able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job which you can create inside your account. In case you want to use a script which you have found online and it requires specific modules to to be available on your server, you'll be able to take full advantage of our vast library that features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any kind of Perl application that you make or find on the worldwide web will function flawlessly on our end.
