Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites because you are able to include just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Provided you buy a Linux shared hosting package through our company, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules present on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules that you can employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use in order to get access to them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll run properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you are able to include this attribute with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
