Perl is an efficient programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts along with different web-based apps. Among its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to do a variety of tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, if five tasks should be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really useful and it can be used for a number of purposes, so many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan has this attribute. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply numerous different functions to your website visitors.
