Perl is a widely used language, which is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you are able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Perl is available with all Linux shared packages that we provide and you're able to execute any kind of .pl file which you upload inside your account using the File Manager of the Control Panel or an FTP software. The aforementioned will help you create an Internet site with all of the options that you'd like your visitors to have, but PHP can't supply. You are able to execute a script either manually or automatically using a cron job. Our plans include countless Perl modules that you are able to employ and you will see a full list in your web hosting account along with the path that you should use in your scripts, so as to be able to access these modules. In case you wish to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job but your plan doesn't offer this feature, you're able to include as many cron jobs as you require from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all our plans, you are able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module so as to operate effectively, we will have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
