Perl is a very popular programming language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you are able to add just one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic site and offer various options to your visitors.
