Perl is a very popular programming language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you're able to include only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our Linux cloud website hosting service as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you've picked doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you're able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

You're able to use every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer as Perl is supported on all our servers. You're able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it in the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. In case you want to employ a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to to exist on the server, you'll be able to benefit from our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you generate or find on the Internet will perform flawlessly on our end.
