Perl is an effective programming language which is frequently used for creating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based applications. Among its key pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to execute various tasks and to extend the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, if five jobs need to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for various purposes, so a wide range of corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your website require a certain module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of options to your site visitors.
