Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you can integrate only one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you want to add to your website require a particular module, for example, you will not have to worry if they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic site and supply countless features to your visitors.
