Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages these days because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites because you'll be able to add just one line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you acquire a hosting through us, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are created. With each package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you're able to employ in your scripts and you can find a full list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use to access them. Should you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you are able to include this option with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
