Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites because you're able to include just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Perl is provided with all cloud web hosting that we offer and you can execute any type of .pl file which you upload within your account thanks to the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. This will allow you to build an Internet site with all the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP does not provide. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans include thousands of Perl modules that you'll be able to employ and you'll see the complete list in your hosting account along with the path which you have to use in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. In case you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job but your plan does not offer this feature, you're able to add as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of your website hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all of our packages, you're able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a specific module so as to function effectively, we will have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
