Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages these days since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed 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 since you're able to integrate only one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you acquire a Linux cloud website hosting from us, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you will get access to over 3000 modules which you can employ in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you need to use to gain access to them. In case you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function correctly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting plan does not come with cron jobs, you'll be able to include this feature with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
