Perl is a very popular language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you'll be able to integrate only one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will work effectively or not. In this way, you're able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to work with every Perl-based application, including CGI scripts, with any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide as Perl is supported on all of our servers.

In case you want to employ a script which you have found online and it requires particular modules to be present on the server, you're able to take full advantage of our vast library which includes over 3000 modules. This way, you can be sure that any Perl application that you write or find on the web will work properly on our end.
