Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you can include only 1 line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create many popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you get a Linux hosting package from our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a large number of modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you can find the entire list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use so as to gain access to them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll work correctly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you'll be able to include this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
