Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific task that can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you can write a single line inside your script to get a module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with various other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's used by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs via 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 all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to include in your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will operate properly or not. In this way, you're able to make a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of functions to your visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you won't encounter any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you are able to call each of 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 application from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it regardless of the modules it requires to function. As long as your .pl files have the right UNIX permissions to be executable, you are able to choose whether a certain script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
