Perl is a widespread programming language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages available because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you will be able to add only 1 line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting through us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to use in your scripts and you will find the complete list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use to be able to access them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you can include this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
