Perl is a widely used scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications 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 specific process which can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you can write a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports various other languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it is used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
In case you obtain a Linux shared web hosting from us, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you will find the full list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use so as to get access to them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll run correctly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you can include this feature with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're able to employ any Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on our servers. You're able to make any kind of .pl file executable by setting the proper UNIX permissions for it from your Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and in accordance with the actual script, it may be executed manually as a result of some action the client performs on the site, or automatically by a cron job that you can create inside your account. If you decide to use a script which you've found online and it needs particular modules to be present on your server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our vast library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that any kind of Perl application that you write or find on the Internet will perform perfectly on our end.
