Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages available since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you will be able to include only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this feature. If not, you can include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and supply various attributes to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not experience any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you're able to call each of them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. When you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you will be able to choose whether a specific script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
