Perl is an excellent programming language that's regularly used for setting up CGI scripts and many different web-based applications. One of its main advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to execute multiple tasks and to extend the performance of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, in the event that five jobs need to be performed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for multiple purposes, that's why a lot of companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our website hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the plan that you've acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You're able to work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically via a cron job that you can create inside your account. In case you decide to use a script which you have found online and it needs certain modules to to be available on the server, you're able to benefit from our vast library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl application that you generate or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
