Perl is a very popular scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a certain job which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you're able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with numerous other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a specific app can do, it is used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Provided you obtain a cloud web hosting through us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you can find the whole list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will function flawlessly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you're able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other apps created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of 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. In addition, you can use a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module so as to operate efficiently, we'll have it as our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
