Perl is a well-known scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful programming languages on the web. 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 alternative languages out there is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write just one line inside your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it's used by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to include in your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry whether they will work effectively or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic website and provide various features to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based software for that matter, you will not experience any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you will be able to call any of them by adding the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. When you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to function. Given that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you're able to select whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
