Perl is an efficient programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based apps. One of its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to do multiple tasks and to enhance the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, if five tasks should be executed, you can employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for numerous purposes, that's why a lot of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used along with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

If you purchase a Linux shared website hosting package through us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules present on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each and every package, you will have access to over 3000 modules that you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use in order to get access to them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run properly no matter what modules it requires 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. In case your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you'll be able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
