Perl is a very popular language, that is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you will be able to add just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting
plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of attributes to your visitors.

If you want to employ a script which you've found online and it requires specific modules to be present on the server, you will be able to take advantage of our rich library that features over 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that every Perl application that you make or find on the worldwide web will perform perfectly on our end.
