Perl is a very popular language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you are able to include just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this feature. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for example, you will not have to worry if they will work effectively or not. This way, you're able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of features to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our plans, you are able to pick if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module so as to operate effectively, we will have it because our library includes both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
