Perl is an efficient programming language which is widely used for generating CGI scripts along with a variety of web-based applications. Among its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to do multiple tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, if five processess need to be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very useful and it can be used for various purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your website demand a certain module, for example, you will not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you're able to build a dynamic website and supply plenty of features to your website visitors.
