Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a particular app can do, it is used by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with any of our Linux website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the plan that you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You're able to make any .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the site, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. In case you decide to use a script that you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on the server, you will be able to benefit from our vast library which features over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any kind of Perl application that you write or find on the web will work perfectly on our end.
