Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you are able to include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to include in your site require a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and provide various functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our plans, you can pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions so as to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module so as to run properly, we'll have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
