Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages out there because it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you are able to include just a single line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will work properly or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and provide numerous different functions to your website visitors.
