Perl is an excellent programming language that's commonly used for creating CGI scripts and also different web-based applications. One of its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to execute multiple tasks and to increase the performance of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, when five processess need to be performed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for numerous purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our Linux shared website hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer as Perl is supported on all our servers. You are able to make any .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically via a cron job that you can create inside your account. Provided you choose to employ a script which you have found online and it requires specific modules to to exist on the server, you're able to benefit from our vast library which includes more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you generate or find on the web will work perfectly on our end.
