Perl is a widely used computer language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you're able to integrate just one line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Perl is available with all of the Linux cloud hosting packages that we provide and you can execute any kind of .pl file that you upload in your account with the File Manager of the Control Panel or some FTP software. This will help you create an Internet site with all the options that you would like your visitors to have, but PHP fails to provide. You're able to execute a script either manually or automatically through a cron job. Our packages feature numerous Perl modules which you're able to employ and you'll see the full list in your website hosting account as well as the path which you should include in your scripts, to be able to access these modules. If you'd like to execute a Perl/CGI script with a cron job yet your package doesn't offer this option, you will be able to add as many cron jobs as you need from the Add Upgrades/Services link on the left-hand side of the website hosting Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to employ any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and based on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically by a cron job which you can set up inside your account. Provided you decide to employ a script which you've found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you are able to take advantage of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl app that you make or find on the web will work properly on our end.
