Perl is a widespread computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages out there as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites as you will be able to include only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Provided you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you will have access to over 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the entire list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use so as to gain access to them. Should you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your website hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
