Perl is a very popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain task that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you can write just one line inside your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it is employed by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you get a Linux cloud web hosting through our company, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you will find the full list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use in order to gain access to them. Should you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you are able to add this attribute with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting 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 included in all plans, you can decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module so as to work effectively, we will have it since our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
