Perl is a sought-after scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line within your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the whole program code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it is employed by a number of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site require a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic site and provide countless attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You can make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the correct UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically by a cron job which you can create inside your account. Provided you decide to use a script which you have found online and it needs certain modules to be present on your server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that includes over 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any type of Perl app that you create or find online will function properly on our end.
