Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it is used by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our shared web hosting because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script will be there when you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. If the package which you have ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be executed manually as a result of some action your client performs on your website, or automatically through a cron job that you can create in your account. If you choose to employ a script that you have found online and it requires specific modules to to be available on your server, you can benefit from our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that every Perl app that you make or find on the web will perform flawlessly on our end.
