Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you can integrate only one line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package has this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your site demand a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will operate properly or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply plenty of features to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all our packages, you will be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module to work effectively, we will have it as our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
