Perl is a popular programming language, that is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you will be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you need to include in your site require a specific module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to make a dynamic website and supply numerous different attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not encounter any kind of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you are able to call any of them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Every time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it regardless of the modules it requires to work. Given that your .pl files include the right UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you're able to choose whether a certain script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute according to your preference.
