Perl is a powerful programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts and different web-based applications. Among its major pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to do various 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 processess need to be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for a number of purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's generally used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you're able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your site demand a certain module, for instance, you will not have to worry whether they will operate properly or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and provide hundreds of different attributes to your targeted visitors.
