Perl is an effective programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based apps. One of its major pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to perform numerous tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, if five tasks have to be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for many different purposes, so a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to add to your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will function effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of functions to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers

You're able to employ any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with any of the semi-dedicated plans that we supply as Perl is supported on our servers.

Provided you decide to use a script that you've found online and it needs particular modules to be present on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any Perl application that you make or find online will function perfectly on our end.
