Perl is a popular language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you're able to integrate just a single line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your site ask for a particular module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will function effectively or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic website and provide a huge selection of attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not experience any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you will be able to call them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. If you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it requires to work. As long as your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you'll be able to choose whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
