Perl is a widely used programming language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you'll be able to add only one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

In case you purchase a hosting plan through our company, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have plenty of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules that you're able to use in your scripts and you can find the whole list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use in order to gain access to them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you can add this attribute with just a few clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our packages, you can select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also use a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to work efficiently, we will have it as our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
