Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you are able to integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Provided you buy a Linux shared web hosting package from our company, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the entire list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use to get access to them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll run correctly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .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 hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you can add this option with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
