Perl is a very popular computer language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages these days since it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you can include just a single line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

In case you purchase a Linux web hosting from our company, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you'll get access to over 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you will find a full list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use so as to be able to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it'll work flawlessly 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 pre-set time interval. If your web hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
