Perl is an efficient programming language that is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts along with many different web-based apps. One of its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to perform numerous tasks and to increase the efficiency of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, when five jobs have to be performed, you can employ five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for multiple purposes, so a wide range of companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your website require a specific module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply various functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all packages, you are able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module in order to function efficiently, we'll have it because our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
