Perl is a very popular programming language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you can include just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your site demand a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will work properly or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic website and provide countless features to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated plans that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and since cron jobs are featured in all plans, you'll be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can use 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 create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to run efficiently, we'll have it as our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
