Perl is a popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line in your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it's used by lots of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package comes with this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website require a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different features to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated plans 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'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can benefit from a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module in order to run effectively, we will have it as our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
