Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages in existence as it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you're able to integrate just one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a Linux shared hosting package
from our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a lot of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will have access to more than 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you will find a full list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path which you have to use so as to gain access to them. When you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll work correctly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your web hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
