Perl is a widespread scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process that can be included in a script by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line inside your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting
plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this feature. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The full 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. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your site demand a certain module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will work effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic site and supply numerous different options to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or all other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are a part of all plans, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module in order to operate efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
