Perl is a well-known scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports numerous other languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it is employed by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your package comes with this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just 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 certain module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will operate efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of functions to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You're able to take advantage of any kind of Perl-based app, including CGI scripts, with all the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer as Perl is supported on all our servers.

Provided you want to employ a script that you've found online and it needs certain modules to be present on your server, you are able to take full advantage of our rich library that features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any Perl app that you write or find on the worldwide web will function properly on our end.
