Perl is a powerful programming language that is commonly used for creating CGI scripts and different web-based applications. Among its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to execute multiple tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, when five jobs need to be performed, you can employ five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for many different purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to include in your site require a specific module, for example, you will not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and offer various attributes to your website visitors.

If you decide to use a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to to be available on the server, you will be able to benefit from our rich library that includes over 3000 modules. Thus, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you write or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
