Perl is an efficient programming language that's frequently used for generating CGI scripts and various web-based applications. One of its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to perform a variety of tasks and to increase the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, when five jobs have to be executed, you're able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really useful and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package comes with this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic site and supply numerous different attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated service that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all our plans, you'll be able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. In addition, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their features 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 requires a specific module so as to function properly, we'll have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You can view the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
