Perl is a widely used computer language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you can include only 1 line of code to call a specific module instead of using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you don't have to worry whether they will run properly or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different characteristics to your website visitors.
