Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a specific task which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you are able to write just a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want 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 demand a particular module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will function efficiently or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic website and supply various attributes to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all packages, you are able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to work efficiently, we will have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
