Perl is a well-known scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to create multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it is employed by a number of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website demand a certain module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic website and supply a huge selection of options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of the packages, you will be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs some module so as to work efficiently, we will have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
