Perl is an excellent programming language that's frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and also a number of web-based apps. Among its major pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to execute multiple tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, when five processess should be executed, you're able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan comes with this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site demand a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and supply numerous different attributes to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are a part of all our plans, you'll be able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can use a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a specific module in order to function efficiently, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
