Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you're able to integrate only one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your site demand a particular module, for example, you do not have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and supply various options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all our packages, you'll be able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module to operate effectively, we will have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
