Perl is a popular language, that is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you are able to add only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
In case you acquire a shared website hosting from us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find a full list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use in order to be able to access them. Should you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will work perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval.
