Perl is an excellent programming language that is commonly used for generating CGI scripts as well as various web-based apps. Among its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to do multiple tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five jobs need to be executed, you can use five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really useful and it may be used for numerous purposes, so many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's commonly used with other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan has this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different features to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

All the semi-dedicated servers that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are featured in all packages, you will be able to choose if a given script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. You can also take advantage of a large library of more than 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features 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 requires a particular module so as to run effectively, we'll have it because our library includes both widespread modules and less popular ones. You'll be able to find the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
