Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you can integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all the plans, you will be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module to operate efficiently, we will have it as our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
