Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific job that can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you can write just one line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's employed by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website demand a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will work effectively or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and supply hundreds of different options to your visitors.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you wish to include CGI scripts on your sites or another Perl-based software for that matter, you won't have any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are set up on our servers and you are able to call any of them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've selected. When you download some application from a third-party site, for example, you can be sure that you'll be able to work with it regardless of the modules it requires to function. Provided that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to make them executable, you will be able to decide whether a certain script will be executed manually by a guest doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job in your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be run every minute, hour or day in accordance with your preference.
