Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites because you're able to include just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site demand a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and supply countless features to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based app for that matter, you won't encounter any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our machines and you are able to call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Every time you download some app from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to work. Given that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you will be able to choose whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. Using the latter option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
