Perl is an excellent programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and also different web-based apps. One of its major pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to do a variety of tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, if five jobs have to be performed, you'll be able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules instead of adding a few hundred lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used along with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud website hosting package through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you will have access to over 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use so as to access them. Should you use any script which you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it will function correctly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will 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 feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with just a couple of clicks in 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 all other applications written in Perl and considering that cron jobs are included in all of the packages, you'll be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on a regular interval of time. What is more, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already installed on our servers and use their features in order to save your time when you write your scripts. If you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it needs a specific module to operate efficiently, we'll have it since our library includes both popular modules and less popular ones. You can find the path to the modules which you have to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
