Perl is a very popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a specific task which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a given app can do, it is used by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our cloud plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you would like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated plans that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all of the plans, you're able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to operate properly, we'll have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
