Perl is a widespread language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you acquire a Linux cloud website hosting through our company, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you should use in order to be able to access them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will run correctly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you can include this attribute with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All Linux semi-dedicated servers that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you'll be able to select if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. Provided you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a certain module so as to operate efficiently, we will have it since our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
