Perl is a widespread scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you can write only one line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's employed by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud web hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the plan that you've picked does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of the plans, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to work effectively, we'll have it as our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
