Perl is an effective programming language which is widely used for creating CGI scripts and a number of web-based applications. One of its key advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to perform numerous tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, if five processess should be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for multiple purposes, so a lot of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud hosting from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the whole list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will run properly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your website hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you are able to add this attribute with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All the semi-dedicated packages that we offer can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you're able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can benefit from a huge library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it requires some module in order to function properly, we'll have it as our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to view the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
