Perl is an effective programming language which is frequently used for making CGI scripts and also various web-based applications. One of its major pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to perform multiple tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, if five jobs need to be executed, you can employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for a number of purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used with other languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to add to your website require a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will operate effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and provide hundreds of different features to your targeted visitors.
