Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you can add 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 language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this feature. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic site and supply countless characteristics to your targeted visitors.
