Perl is a popular programming language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites because you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Provided you get a website hosting service from our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you'll be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you're able to employ in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use to get access to them. In case you use any script which you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you'll be able to include this attribute with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a specific module so as to operate properly, we'll have it since our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
