Perl is a widespread language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you're able to add just one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Provided you obtain a Linux hosting from our company, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a lot of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you can find the complete list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use in order to be able to access them. When you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our packages, you are able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality 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 if it needs a particular module so as to work efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can view 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.
