Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages in existence as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites since you will be able to add only 1 line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you want to add to your website demand a specific module, for example, you will not need to worry if they will work properly or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic site and supply countless functions to your targeted visitors.
