Perl is a very popular computer language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites since you're able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared plan from us, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you can find the full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use so as to get access to them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll function properly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your website hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you will be able to add this option with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
