Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you will be able to integrate just one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you don't need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic Internet site and provide plenty of characteristics to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all plans, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module so as to operate 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 that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
