Perl is a widely used scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you are able to write a single line within your script to have a whole module executed, rather than having the whole program code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it is used by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a Linux cloud hosting through us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every package, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you are able to employ in your scripts and you can find a full list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use to get access to them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll work correctly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you can include this option with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply can run CGI scripts or any other apps created in Perl and since cron jobs are featured in all packages, you are able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you create your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a certain module to run effectively, we will have it as our library contains both widely used modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
