Perl is a very popular computer language, that is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages available because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you will be able to add only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Provided you purchase a cloud web hosting through our company, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single plan, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you'll be able to use in your scripts and you will find a full list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use so as to be able to access them. Should you use any script that you have downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll function perfectly whatever the modules it requires 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 given time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you're able to add this feature with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

In case you choose to use a script that you've found online and it requires certain modules to be present on your server, you can reap the benefits of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules.
