Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages these days because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you're able to include only 1 line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

In case you obtain a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you will get access to more than 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you will find the whole list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you should use in order to be able to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will function perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not encounter any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our machines and you can call each of them by adding the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Any time you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to function. Provided that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you'll be able to decide whether a particular script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. Using the second option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
