Perl is a powerful programming language that's frequently used for creating CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. One of its key pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to do a variety of tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, if five jobs should be performed, you are able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for multiple purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting
packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this feature. If not, you're able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your site require a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply hundreds of different features to your visitors.
