Perl is a popular language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you will be able to add only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this attribute. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to add to your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic site and provide countless characteristics to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all packages, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality in order to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module in order to operate properly, we will have it because our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
