Perl is a widely used computer language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages nowadays as it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites because you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a particular module, for example, you don't need to worry if they will run efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and supply plenty of features to your website visitors.
