Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you can include only 1 line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you buy a Linux cloud hosting package from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules present on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you're able to employ in your scripts and you can find a full list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use in order to be able to access them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run correctly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you'll be able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer can run CGI scripts or any other applications created in Perl and since cron jobs are included in all packages, you'll be able to pick if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. In addition, you can benefit from a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their functionality to save your time when you create your scripts. In case you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that in case it needs a particular module to operate properly, we'll have it since our library features both widely used modules and less popular ones. You will be able to see the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts in the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
