Perl is a widely used computer language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective 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 particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you're able to include only 1 line of code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package has this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website require a certain module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and offer plenty of functions to your targeted visitors.
