Perl is an effective programming language which is frequently used for making CGI scripts and many different web-based applications. One of its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to execute numerous tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, if five processess should be performed, you can employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your package has this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to include in your site require a particular module, for example, you will not need to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you're able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide various characteristics to your website visitors.
