Perl is a powerful programming language that is widely used for making CGI scripts as well as different web-based apps. One of its major pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to perform multiple tasks and to enhance the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, if five jobs should be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very useful and it can be used for multiple purposes, so many corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our cloud website hosting packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package that you've acquired doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to employ any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You are able to make each .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically through a cron job which you can set up inside your account. If you want to use a script which you have found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on your server, you're able to take full advantage of our vast library which features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you create or find on the worldwide web will work properly on our end.
