Perl is a popular scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with many other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's employed by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. In case the package which you have purchased does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you'll be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply can run CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all our plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module in order to run properly, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
