Perl is a powerful programming language that's regularly used for creating CGI scripts and a number of web-based applications. One of its key pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to execute numerous tasks and to extend the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, in the event that five tasks should be executed, you can use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for numerous purposes, that's why a number of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used with other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic site and offer various functions to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all of our plans, you're able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs some module to run efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
