Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a certain task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you'll be able to write just one line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it is employed by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you want to include in your website demand a particular module, for instance, you don't have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply various characteristics to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you are able to call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. If you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to work. As long as your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to be executable, you'll be able to decide whether a given script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
