Perl is a widely used computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you will be able to include just one line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your site demand a specific module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will function properly or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of functions to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all of our packages, you are able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a vast 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 create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module so as to operate effectively, we will have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
