Perl is an efficient programming language that is regularly used for making CGI scripts and different web-based apps. Among its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to perform multiple tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. In other words, in the event that five tasks have to be executed, you can use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for various purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website require a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer plenty of features to your website visitors.

Provided you choose to use a script that you have found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on your server, you will be able to take full advantage of our vast library that features over 3000 modules. In this way, you can be sure that any kind of Perl app that you create or find online will perform properly on our end.
