Perl is a widespread programming language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you are able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all 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. In case third-party scripts that you want to include in your website demand a certain module, for example, you don't need to worry if they will function properly or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic site and provide various characteristics to your website visitors.
