Perl is a widespread programming language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites since you'll be able to include just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like 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 Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website 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 in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your website demand a particular module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic website and provide countless features to your site visitors.
