Perl is a widespread scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific process which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you are able to write a single line within your script to have a module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports many other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it's employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and offer countless options to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all of the plans, you'll be able to choose 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 set up on our servers and use their functions to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module in order to operate effectively, we will have it as our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You can see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
