Perl is a widespread programming language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages out there as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you can include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you're able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web 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. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your website require a particular module, for example, you won't have to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic website and provide plenty of functions to your website visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to take advantage of every Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide as Perl is supported on all our servers.

If you want to employ a script that you have found online and it requires specific modules to be present on the server, you're able to reap the benefits of our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. In this way, you can rest assured that every Perl app that you make or find online will perform flawlessly on our end.
