Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you can include only one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a number of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

In case you obtain a hosting service from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you will have access to over 3000 modules which you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the full list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use to get access to them. In case you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll run perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you are able to add this feature with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
