Perl is a well-known programming language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you can integrate only one line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will function properly or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and offer numerous different options to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all plans, you're able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can use 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 create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to run effectively, we'll have it as our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
