Perl is a popular language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you are able to integrate just one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan comes with 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 are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to include in your site demand a specific module, for instance, you won't have to worry if they will function effectively or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic site and provide numerous different features to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't experience any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you'll be able to call any of them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Any time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it requires to function. Provided that your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a specific script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. Using the latter option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
