Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write just a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a particular app can do, it's used by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your website require a particular module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will operate properly or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic website and offer plenty of features to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to work with every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply as Perl is supported on all of our servers. You'll be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job that you can set up inside your account. If you want to use a script which you've found online and it needs particular modules to be present on the server, you'll be able to take advantage of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you create or find online will perform properly on our end.
