Perl is a sought-after scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line within your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it's employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your site demand a particular module, for example, you will not have to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide plenty of options to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all our packages, you are able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to work properly, we will have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
