Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write just a single line in your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl supports many other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it is used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a particular module, for example, you won't have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic site and offer hundreds of different functions to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to employ any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You're able to make each .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up inside your account. If you choose to employ a script that you have found online and it needs certain modules to be present on your server, you will be able to take full advantage of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you write or find on the Internet will function perfectly on our end.
