Perl is an effective programming language that is frequently used for generating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based apps. One of its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to execute numerous tasks and to enhance the performance of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks need to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really useful and it may be used for multiple purposes, that's why many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting through us, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems since we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you'll have access to more than 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you can find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use so as to gain access to them. Should you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function properly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you are able to add this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
