Perl is a well-known scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular task which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific application can do, it is used by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you purchase a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you will be given access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you'll find the complete list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use in order to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll work properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your website hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you can add this feature with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of our plans, you will be able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save your time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a specific module so as to function efficiently, we'll have it because our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
