Perl is a popular programming language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you will be able to add just one line of code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

In case you get a shared website hosting plan through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you are able to employ in your scripts and you can find the whole list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to be able to access them. In case you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will run flawlessly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your web hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
