Perl is a widespread language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you can add only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the complete list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you should use in order to be able to access them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it will run correctly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with a few clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not have any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you can call any of them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Every time you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to function. As long as your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you'll be able to decide whether a given script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be run every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
