Perl is a well-known language, which is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you can integrate just a single line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

In case you purchase a hosting through us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll be given access to more than 3000 modules which you will be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use so as to gain access to them. In case you use any script which you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run correctly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
