Perl is an excellent programming language that is frequently used for generating CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based apps. One of its major advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to do various tasks and to extend the functionality of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, if five processess need to be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used along with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you want to include in your website ask for a particular module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and provide plenty of options to your targeted visitors.
