Perl is a popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular job which can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you can write a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with many other languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it's employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to include in your website require a specific module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic Internet site and supply countless attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you'll be able to call each of them by including the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. If you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it requires to work. Provided that your .pl files include the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you'll be able to select whether a specific script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. Using the second option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
