Perl is a sought-after scripting language that is considered to be one of the most useful languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line inside your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a specific application can do, it's used by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. In the event that the plan that you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all our packages, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module so as to run properly, we will have it as our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
