Perl is a very popular programming language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites as you can include only 1 line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been used to create many popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to add to your site demand a certain module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will function effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide plenty of characteristics to your targeted visitors.
