Perl is a well-known programming language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you're able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this feature. If not, you'll 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'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your site require a particular module, for example, you will not need to worry whether they will operate properly or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer numerous different attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated service that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all the plans, you'll be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a certain module to operate effectively, we will have it as our library contains 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 hosting Control Panel.
