Perl is a popular scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be included in a script by calling them which means that you're able to write a single line within your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you don't need to worry if they will work effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic website and provide various characteristics to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated packages that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all the plans, you can choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module to run properly, we'll have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
