Perl is an efficient programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and a variety of web-based apps. One of its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, in the event that five processess should be executed, you're able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for many different purposes, so a number of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

In case you obtain a website hosting through us, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a large number of modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the entire list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use to access them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your website hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you'll be able to add this option with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all our plans, you'll be able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module to operate properly, we will have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to view 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.
