Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its support for modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just one line within your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl can be used with many other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it's employed by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply a huge selection of options to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all the plans, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module in order to operate properly, we'll have it because our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
