Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific process which can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's used by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Provided you get a Linux cloud package
through us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you'll be able to use in your scripts and you can find the full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you have to use in order to access them. Should you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will work perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your web hosting package does not include cron jobs, you're able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we offer are capable of running CGI scripts or any other applications written in Perl and considering the fact that cron jobs are part of all of our plans, you are able to choose if a certain script will be executed manually or automatically on regular basis. Also, you can take advantage of a large library of over 3000 modules that are already set up on our servers and use their functionality so as to save your time when you write your scripts. In the event that you use some third-party Perl script, you can also be sure that if it requires a certain module to operate effectively, we will have it as our library features both widespread modules and less popular ones. You will be able to view the path to the modules which you should use in our scripts under the Server Information drop-down menu of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
