Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most practical programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you will be able to add only one line of code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your site ask for a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you're able to build a dynamic Internet site and supply a huge selection of options to your visitors.
