Perl is a widely used scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific process that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just one line in your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl supports numerous other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it is used by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered 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 wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you need to include in your website ask for a certain module, for example, you will not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic site and provide numerous different attributes to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not experience any problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you are able to call them by including the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. If you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to work with it regardless of the modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you are able to decide whether a particular script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by creating a cron job in your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
