Perl is an effective programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based applications. Among its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to do various tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five tasks should be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for a number of purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared hosting plans without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan has this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your site require a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will run properly or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and provide a huge selection of attributes to your website visitors.
