Perl is a popular language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you are able to include only one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to include in your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and provide a huge selection of functions to your visitors.
