Perl is an efficient programming language which is commonly used for generating CGI scripts along with a number of web-based applications. One of its major advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to perform multiple tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, if five processess have to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for a number of purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's often used with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic website and offer countless options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all our packages, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can benefit from a vast library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a particular module so as to work properly, we'll have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view 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.
