Perl is a widely used programming language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages in existence as it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you can integrate only 1 line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Provided you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting from us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a large number of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you can find the full list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use so as to gain access to them. Should you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll work flawlessly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
