Perl is an effective programming language that is widely used for setting up CGI scripts and different web-based apps. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to do a variety of tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five processess should be executed, you can use five lines of code in order 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 really practical and it may be used for a number of purposes, that's why a number of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

With our shared packages, you will be able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
