Perl is a very popular scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports numerous other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our cloud web hosting plans as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package which you have acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you'll be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated plans that we supply can run CGI scripts or all other applications written in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all of our packages, you're able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to operate effectively, we'll have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
