Perl is a widespread scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write just one line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports various other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it is employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A 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 include in your site require a particular module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply plenty of characteristics to your site visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to employ every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply as Perl is supported on all our servers.

If you want to employ a script which you've found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you generate or find on the web will function properly on our end.
