Perl is an excellent programming language that's commonly used for creating CGI scripts as well as various web-based applications. One of its key pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to execute a variety of tasks and to extend the performance of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, if five processess need to be performed, you can employ five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for many different purposes, so a wide range of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used along with other languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to add to your site ask for a certain module, for example, you don't need to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different options to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are part of all packages, you can select if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What's more, you can benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already installed 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 needs some module in order to work effectively, we will have it because our library contains both popular modules and less popular ones. You'll 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.
