Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write just one line inside your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending on what a specific application can do, it's employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Provided you get a shared service through us, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you will get access to over 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. Should you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll work flawlessly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you'll be able to include this option with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated servers that we supply can run CGI scripts or all other apps written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all our packages, you're able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module to run effectively, we will have it as our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
