Why is Perl a programming language picked for a lot of developers?
Perl is a very popular computer language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you're able to integrate just a single line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to include in your website demand a particular module, for example, you will not have to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide countless functions to your site visitors.
