Perl is a well-known scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to create multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write only one line within your script to have a module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it's employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our Linux shared website hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there whenever you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package which you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also have to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Perl is supported on all our servers, so when you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll be able to use any kind of tailor-made or ready-made CGI script or another Perl-based web application without any difficulties. To save you time and efforts, we've also set up several thousand modules that you can employ. You will be able to see the path to the library in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and add any module within your scripts. Some third-party scripts, for instance, require certain modules, so that they can work properly. Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two separate ways - manually, in case a website visitor does a certain action on your website, or automatically, if you set up a cron job from your account. In the second case, you can choose the interval depending on what the script will do and how often you want it to run - once every minute, hour, day, etcetera.
