Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line in your script to have a module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl supports many other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it's employed by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site ask for a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different functions to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated service that we provide can run CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all our plans, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. You can also take advantage of a huge library of over 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features in order to save time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a particular module so as to work efficiently, we will have it as our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll 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 your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
