Perl is a popular scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to create various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain task that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you are able to write a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports many other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

If you acquire a Linux cloud web hosting package through our company, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you'll be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you're able to use in your scripts and you can find the whole list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use so as to be able to access them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will work correctly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your website hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you are able to add this attribute with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply can run CGI scripts or all other applications created in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are included in all of our packages, you're able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can use a vast library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functions so as to save your time when you create your scripts. If you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a particular module in order to run effectively, we'll have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You are able to see the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
