Perl is a very popular scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you can write only one line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given app can do, it's used by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you get a Linux cloud web hosting plan through us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a lot of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use so as to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your website hosting package doesn't feature 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 of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you are able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module to function efficiently, we'll have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
