Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you are able to include just a single line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared web hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan includes this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a particular module, for instance, you will not need to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer countless attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all of our packages, you are able to decide if a certain 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 that are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module to run effectively, we'll have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
