Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages available because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and supply various attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you can use any kind of custom-made or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without any difficulties. To save your time and efforts, we've also installed several thousand modules which you can employ. You can see the path to the library in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, need to have particular modules, so as to operate properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, when a visitor performs a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you set up a cron job through your account. In the second case, you can choose the interval according to what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etcetera.
