Perl is an effective programming language that's widely used for setting up CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based apps. Among its major advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute a variety of tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you can use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for a number of purposes, so many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's commonly used in addition to other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically through a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website ask for a specific module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will function properly or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply hundreds of different attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other apps developed in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are featured in all our plans, you are able to select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their functions to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to run efficiently, we'll have it as our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
