Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you're able to write only one line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with numerous other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's used by lots of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website demand a specific module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will run effectively or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic website and provide plenty of characteristics to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all packages, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module in order to work effectively, we'll have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
