Perl is an excellent programming language that's frequently used for creating CGI scripts and also many different web-based applications. Among its key advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to do various tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, if five tasks should be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for multiple purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your package comes with this option. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will function efficiently or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and offer various characteristics to your site visitors.
