Perl is a very popular programming language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to add only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you obtain a cloud plan through our company, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules which you will be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use to gain access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will work properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting package does not include cron jobs, you will be able to add this attribute with a few clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated plans that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all of the packages, you are able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs some module to function effectively, we'll have it because our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
