Perl is a widely used scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain process that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you can write a single line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it's used by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire a cloud hosting from our company, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the complete list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use to be able to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll work flawlessly whatever the modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you'll be able to add this option with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all packages, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can take advantage of a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a certain module to function efficiently, we'll have it since our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
