Perl is an efficient programming language that's commonly used for making CGI scripts along with many different web-based applications. One of its key pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to perform numerous tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, if five processess need to be executed, you're able to use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very useful and it can be used for a number of purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's commonly used along with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting packages because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the package that you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make any .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job that you can create in your account. Provided you choose to use a script that you have found online and it needs certain modules to to be available on the server, you can reap the benefits of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any Perl application that you create or find online will perform properly on our end.
