Perl is a widely used computer language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites since you are able to integrate just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Provided you buy a Linux cloud web hosting from us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you'll get access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the full list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use to access them. Should you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you're able to add this feature with a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other applications created in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all of the plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a huge library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save time when you write your scripts. In case you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires a specific module in order to function properly, we will have it since our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to see the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
