Perl is a well-known computer language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you'll be able to integrate just a single line of code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language often used for scripts, but it has been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will work properly or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic site and provide plenty of attributes to your website visitors.
