Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

If you purchase a website hosting package through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you will find the full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use in order to gain access to them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll run flawlessly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to add this option with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
