Perl is a well-known scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain job which can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write only one line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

In case you obtain a Linux shared hosting package through us, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each and every package, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules which you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find a full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. In case you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will work properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers. You'll be able to make each .pl file executable by setting the proper 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 your client performs on your site, or automatically via a cron job which you can create in your account. If you decide to use a script that you have found online and it needs particular modules to to be available on the server, you can take full advantage of our rich library that includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that every Perl application that you make or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
