Perl is a well-known scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a specific process which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write just a single line inside your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it is employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all our cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You will be able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package that you've acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file features the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you can build a site with as many functions and features as you like.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to employ any Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated services that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers.

Provided you want to employ a script which you have found online and it requires certain modules to to exist on your server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library that includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any Perl app that you make or find online will perform flawlessly on our end.
