Perl is a well-known scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to create multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a certain job which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just one line inside your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with many other languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it is used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud web hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the plan which you have obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all plans, you are able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also use a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module in order to function properly, we'll have it as our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
