Perl is a well-known scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the support for modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write just one line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's used by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

If you acquire a shared website hosting through our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a lot of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you will find the full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to gain access to them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you'll be able to include this option with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to take advantage of any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You will be able to make every .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up in your account. In case you decide to use a script which you have found online and it needs certain modules to to be available on the server, you are able to take full advantage of our vast library that includes more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you generate or find on the web will function properly on our end.
