Perl is an efficient programming language that's commonly used for creating CGI scripts as well as different web-based applications. One of its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to execute a variety of tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, if five tasks should be performed, you are able to employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for many different purposes, so many corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's often used with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list is available inside 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 would like to include in your site require a specific module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic website and provide numerous different attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all packages, you'll be able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also use a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save 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 specific module in order to work effectively, we will have it as our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
