Perl is a widespread programming language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you can add only one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create many popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Perl is available with all cloud plans that we offer and you're able to execute any .pl file that you upload in your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP program. This will enable you to build a site with all of the features that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to supply. You will be able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans come with a large number of Perl modules which you're able to employ and you'll see the complete list in your web hosting account in addition to the path that you should use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script through a cron job but your package doesn't offer this option, you'll be able to add as many cron jobs as you need via the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the web hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to employ every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You are able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job which you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to use a script which you've found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on the server, you will be able to take advantage of our vast library that features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any kind of Perl app that you write or find on the web will work flawlessly on our end.
