Perl is a widely used scripting language that's considered to be one of the most practical languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write only one line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports numerous other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it is employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site require a certain module, for example, you don't have to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer countless options to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not have any kind of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you can call any of them by adding the path which you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. If you download some app from a third-party site, for example, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to work. As long as your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you are able to decide whether a certain script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the aforementioned option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
