Perl is a widespread scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you're able to write just one line in your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with various other languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a specific app can do, it is employed by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your site require a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic website and provide numerous different functions to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all plans, you will be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your 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 to function effectively, we will have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
