Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages out there is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write a single line in your script to have a module executed, instead of having the whole program code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a particular app can do, it is employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan has this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you don't need to worry whether they will function effectively or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic site and supply countless options to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of the packages, you'll be able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module to function effectively, we will have it as our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
