Perl is a widespread language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you'll be able to integrate only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan comes with this option. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website ask for a certain module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic website and offer a huge selection of features to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all of our servers, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are able to use any custom or ready-made CGI script or other Perl-based web app without difficulty. To save you time and effort, we have also installed several thousand modules which you're able to employ. You can see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and include any module in your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, will need specific modules, so that they can function properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, if a visitor does a particular action on your website, or automatically, when you create a cron job through your account. In the second case, you will be able to choose the interval depending on what your script will do and how often you want it to run - once a day, hour, minute, etc.
