Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write only one line inside your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports a lot of other languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it is used by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers. You will be able to make any .pl file executable by setting the appropriate UNIX permissions for it through the Hepsia Control Panel or through any FTP client and depending on the actual script, it may be run manually as a result of some action your client performs on the website, or automatically by a cron job that you can set up in your account. Provided you decide to employ a script that you have found online and it requires specific modules to be present on your server, you will be able to take advantage of our vast library which includes more than 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that every Perl application that you make or find on the Internet will perform perfectly on our end.
