Perl is a widely used language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of 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 sites as you can integrate only one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

In case you buy a Linux hosting from our company, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use to get access to them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting package does not include cron jobs, you are able to add this option with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply can run CGI scripts or any other apps written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all our plans, you can pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module so as to work efficiently, we'll have it because our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
