Perl is a popular language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites because you'll be able to add just one line of code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package has this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website 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 full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you need to include in your site ask for a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will work properly or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and offer numerous different options to your site visitors.
