Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available as it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you will be able to add just a single line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you obtain a Linux hosting package through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With every single plan, you'll get access to over 3000 modules which you're able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the full list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use so as to be able to access them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to include this feature with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
