Perl is a widespread language, which is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you'll be able to add only 1 line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Provided you obtain a website hosting through our company, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll be given access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the complete list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use to be able to access them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll function perfectly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you're able to add this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
