Perl is an effective programming language that's commonly used for generating CGI scripts as well as different web-based applications. One of its key advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform multiple tasks and to increase the performance of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, when five jobs should be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for numerous purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations 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 Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your website ask for a specific module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and provide countless features to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all the packages, you are able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What is more, you can take advantage of a vast library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module to run effectively, we'll have it because our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
