Perl is a powerful programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and many different web-based applications. Among its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to do various tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be executed, you are able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for many different purposes, so many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically through a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you won't have to worry if they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and supply a huge selection of functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are featured in all of the packages, you are able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save your 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 specific module so as to work properly, we will have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
