Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its support for modules - sets of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you are able to write a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl can be used with various other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given application 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 Shared Web Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available 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 that you need to add to your website demand a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will work effectively or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic site and supply hundreds of different options to your targeted visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we offer can run CGI scripts or all other apps written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all our plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a particular module so as to operate efficiently, we'll have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
