Perl is a widely used 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 generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write just one line in your script to have 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 various other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a given app can do, it is used by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan has this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic site and offer a huge selection of options to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of the plans, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a particular module to function properly, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
