Perl is a widespread scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write a single line in your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific application can do, it's employed by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you acquire a Linux hosting from us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path which you have to use in order to get access to them. Should you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you can add this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all packages, you're able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a large library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module in order to run effectively, we'll have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
