Perl is an effective programming language that is regularly used for generating CGI scripts and various web-based applications. One of its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to perform various tasks and to extend the efficiency of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, if five tasks need to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for numerous purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your site demand a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will run effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic site and supply numerous different characteristics to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are featured in all plans, you're able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to run properly, we will have it because our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
