Perl is a popular language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages out there since it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you are able to include just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you will have access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use in order to gain access to them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you can include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and since cron jobs are part of all our packages, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module to function efficiently, we will have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
