Perl is a sought-after scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line within your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it is used by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan comes with this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you want to add to your site ask for a specific module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will run properly or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic website and offer plenty of options to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or another Perl-based app for that matter, you won't have any sort of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our machines and you are able to call them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. Any time you download some app from a third-party site, for example, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it whatever the modules it needs to function. As long as your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to be executable, you will be able to decide whether a particular script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
