Perl is a widely used scripting language that's regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you can write only one line in your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even 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 area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply hundreds of different options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps created in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all the plans, you are able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module so as to run properly, we'll have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
