Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a specific app can do, it is used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your website require a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply various characteristics to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you will be able to call them by including the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. If you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it no matter what modules it needs to work. As long as your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to be executable, you are 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 inside your account. With the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
