Perl is a powerful programming language that's widely used for setting up CGI scripts along with a variety of web-based applications. One of its major pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to execute various tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you are able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for various purposes, that's why a lot of companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website ask for a certain module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and supply various options to your visitors.
