Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you'll be able to add just one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this feature. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website require a certain module, for example, you will not need to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply various features to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all packages, you are able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions so as to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a certain module in order to work properly, we will have it as our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
