Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you'll be able to add only one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
In case you obtain a hosting
from us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you'll find the whole list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you have to use to get access to them. When you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your website hosting package does not include cron jobs, you can include this feature with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
