Perl is an excellent programming language that's frequently used for making CGI scripts and a number of web-based applications. One of its key advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to perform multiple tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs have to be executed, you can use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for a variety of purposes, so a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is ordinarily used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you can add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to include in your site require a specific module, for instance, you won't have to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer a huge selection of attributes to your website visitors.
