Perl is a very popular language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you're able to add only one line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a Linux cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you will find the entire list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your web hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you can add this option with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you'll be able to call each of them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Any time you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you can decide whether a certain script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
