Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful programming 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 on the market is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you can write just one line in your script to get a module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with numerous other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a given app can do, it's used by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud website hosting through our company, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each and every package, you will have access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you will find a full list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you have to use to gain access to them. When you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function flawlessly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to add this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide can run CGI scripts or various other apps developed in Perl and due to the fact that cron jobs are part of all plans, you will be able to decide if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. What's more, you can take advantage of a huge library of more than 3000 modules which are already set up on our servers and use their features so as to save your time when you create your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires some module so as to operate properly, we will have it since our library features both popular modules and less popular ones. You're able to view the path to the modules that you need to use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
