Perl is a popular language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages in existence as it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you are able to add just one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud website hosting services as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you have obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to take advantage of every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically via a cron job which you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to employ a script which you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on the server, you are able to reap the benefits of our vast library which features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you create or find on the Internet will work properly on our end.
