Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain job that 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 have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer various attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all the packages, you'll be able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to run efficiently, 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 which you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
