Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages in existence as it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites since you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
In case you obtain a Linux hosting through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use in order to be able to access them. Should you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll work properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your hosting package does not include cron jobs, you can add this option with a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
