Perl is an effective programming language that is frequently used for making CGI scripts and various web-based apps. One of its major pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to do numerous tasks and to extend the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, when five jobs should be executed, you can use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a large number of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for multiple purposes, so a wide range of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used in addition to other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud web hosting packages as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. If the package which you've purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all our plans, you will be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module to run efficiently, we'll have it because our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
