Perl is a widespread computer language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a certain task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you'll be able to include only one line of code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you want to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide numerous different options to your site visitors.
