Perl is an efficient programming language that is regularly used for making CGI scripts and also various web-based apps. One of its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to execute multiple tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for multiple purposes, so many companies have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you don't need to worry if they will work effectively or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and supply hundreds of different features to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all plans, you are able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module in order to run properly, we'll have it because our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
