Perl is a powerful programming language that is regularly used for generating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based applications. Among its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to do a variety of tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you can employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for a number of purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's commonly used with other languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic site and offer various functions to your targeted visitors.
