Perl is a well-known scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain task which can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write only one line inside your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it's used by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you acquire a cloud hosting from us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll run properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting plan does not come with cron jobs, you're able to include this option with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated servers that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You'll be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it via the Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on your site, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up inside your account. In case you decide to use a script that you've found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which includes over 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that every Perl app that you create or find on the Internet will perform perfectly on our end.
