Perl is a popular programming language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you can add just one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

In case you acquire a web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules which you will be able to use in your scripts and you can find the whole list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use so as to access them. In case you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll run properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you're able to include this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

You will be able to work with any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job that you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our vast library that includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any kind of Perl app that you generate or find on the worldwide web will work perfectly on our end.
