Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write just a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's used by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your website demand a particular module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide various functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated plans that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all of our plans, you will be able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save your time when you create your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module to run effectively, we will have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
