Perl is a well-known programming language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you can integrate just one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site demand a specific module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic site and provide various features to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are a part of all of our plans, you can select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module so as to work properly, we will have it because our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
