Perl is a very popular computer language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you will be able to include only 1 line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic site and provide countless features to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide are capable of running CGI scripts or various other applications developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our plans, you'll be able to decide if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functions in order to save time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a specific module so as to work efficiently, we will have it since our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
