Perl is an effective programming language which is commonly used for generating CGI scripts as well as many different web-based apps. One of its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to execute multiple tasks and to increase the efficiency of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, in the event that five processess should be performed, you're able to 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, that's why a lot of companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

If you purchase a website hosting plan through us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each package, you'll be given access to more than 3000 modules which you're able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use so as to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll function perfectly whatever the modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you can add this option with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
