Perl is a very popular computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites since you're able to add only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to include in your website ask for a particular module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will run properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic website and provide hundreds of different features to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the semi-dedicated hosting that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all our plans, you are able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module in order to run properly, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
