Perl is a widely used scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you can write only one line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with many other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it's used by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you want to add to your site demand a particular module, for example, you will not have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and provide hundreds of different attributes to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You're able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job which you can create in your account. If you decide to employ a script that you've found online and it requires specific modules to to exist on your server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library which features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any Perl application that you write or find on the web will perform flawlessly on our end.
