Perl is a widespread computer language, that is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this option. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a certain module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different features to your visitors.
