Perl is an efficient programming language which is regularly used for making CGI scripts and a variety of web-based apps. One of its main advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to do numerous tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, if five jobs should be executed, you are able to use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules rather than including hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for various purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you have purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you can build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to work with any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and based on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically through a cron job that you can create inside your account. If you decide to employ a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to take advantage of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you write or find on the web will function flawlessly on our end.
