Perl is a widespread computer language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you'll be able to include only one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of functions to your site visitors.
