Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you'll be able to write a single line inside your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with a lot of other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it is used by a number of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website demand a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic site and supply a huge selection of functions to your site visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or some other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't have any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you are able to call any of them by including the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to use it whatever the modules it needs to work. As long as your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to make them executable, you're able to select whether a specific script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. When you use the aforementioned option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
