Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you are able to include only 1 line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you acquire a cloud hosting through our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you will be given access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to use in your scripts and you will find a full list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use so as to access them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will function properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all packages, you'll be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to run effectively, we'll have it since our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
