Perl is a well-known computer language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages available since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you are able to add only 1 line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Provided you get a web hosting from our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you will be given access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use so as to access them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will work perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your website hosting package does not include cron jobs, you can add this attribute with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
