Perl is a very popular language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites because you are able to add only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each and every package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use in order to gain access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you'll be able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or all other applications developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all the plans, you can decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality in order to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs some module in order to run effectively, we'll have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
