Perl is a well-known scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific task that can be included in a script by calling them which means that you'll be able to write only one line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire program code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with various other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it's used by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to add to your site ask for a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to create a dynamic website and offer various characteristics to your website visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and since cron jobs are a part of all the plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can take advantage of a vast library of over 3000 modules which are already installed on our servers and use their features so as to save time when you create your scripts. Provided you use a third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module so as to work properly, we'll have it since our library contains both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to find the path to the modules which you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
