Perl is an excellent programming language that is regularly used for creating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based apps. Among its major advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to execute multiple tasks and to increase the efficiency of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks should be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for multiple purposes, that's why a lot of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared hosting through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each and every package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you can find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use so as to be able to access them. Should you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run correctly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you can add this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or all other apps created in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all of our packages, you'll be able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features 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 needs some module in order to run effectively, we'll have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
