Perl is a well-known scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line inside your script to have a module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports various other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux shared web hosting package through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each package, you'll be given access to more than 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you will find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you have to use to be able to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you'll be able to add this option with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to work with every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the semi-dedicated hosting that we offer as Perl is supported on our servers. You can make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the right UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any kind of FTP client and depending on the actual script, it can be run manually as a result of some action the client performs on the website, or automatically through a cron job which you can set up in your account. If you want to employ a script which you've found online and it requires particular modules to be present on your server, you can take full advantage of our vast library that includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl app that you make or find on the web will perform flawlessly on our end.
