Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages these days as it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you'll be able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this feature. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site demand a particular module, for example, you don't need to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you'll be able to call them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Any time you download some app from a third-party website, for example, you can be sure that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it needs to function. Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you can choose whether a particular script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. When you use the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute according to your preference.
