Perl is a very popular computer language, which is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program 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 because you are able to add only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer a huge selection of options to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all of our packages, you will be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can use a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to operate effectively, we will have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to find 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.
