Perl is an excellent programming language that's commonly used for setting up CGI scripts and various kinds of web-based apps. Among its main advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five jobs should be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for numerous purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used in addition to other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared website hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site demand a certain module, for example, you will not need to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic site and offer plenty of features to your website visitors.
