Perl is a very popular computer language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages available as it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you're able to add just one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish 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 need to add to your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic website and supply various characteristics to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer can run CGI scripts or various other apps written in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all the packages, you will be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. Also, you can use a large library of more than 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module to operate efficiently, we'll have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to see the path to the modules that you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
