Perl is a widely used programming language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages available as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you're able to include only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Provided you obtain a shared plan from us, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have numerous modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each package, you'll be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you can find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will work properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you're able to include this option with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
