Perl is a widely used language, that is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you will be able to include only one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

In case you purchase a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules installed on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are created. With every single plan, you will have access to more than 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you will find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use in order to get access to them. Should you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your website hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you'll be able to add this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
