Perl is a sought-after scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate a number of 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 specific job which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write only one line within your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports a lot of other languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it is employed by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic site and supply hundreds of different attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You're able to make each .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up inside your account. In case you want to employ a script which you've found online and it needs particular modules to to be available on the server, you're able to take advantage of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you create or find on the Internet will function perfectly on our end.
