Perl is an excellent programming language that's frequently used for creating CGI scripts and various web-based apps. Among its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to execute numerous tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs need to be executed, you're able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for a number of purposes, so a wide range of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used with other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux shared web hosting packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you want through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all our servers, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are able to use any kind of tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save your time and efforts, we've also included several thousand modules which you'll be able to take advantage of. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for example, need particular modules, so as to function effectively. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be done in two ways - manually, if a website visitor performs a certain action on your site, or automatically, if you set up a cron job through your account. In the second case, you'll be able to choose the interval according to what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once a minute, hour, day, etcetera.
