Perl is a well-known computer language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you are able to add only 1 line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it has 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 for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Provided you get a Linux shared web hosting through us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you can find a full list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. When you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run properly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
