Perl is a popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write only one line in your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given app can do, it is employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our Linux cloud website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can create a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of our plans, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can use a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as 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 requires a particular module so as to run effectively, we will have it since our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
