Perl is an effective programming language that is commonly used for making CGI scripts along with different web-based apps. Among its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute various tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs should be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for multiple purposes, so a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan comes with this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and offer various attributes to your targeted visitors.
