Perl is a powerful programming language that's widely used for generating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based applications. Among its major advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are employed to execute a variety of tasks and to increase the performance of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be executed, you're able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for a variety of purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is ordinarily used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website require a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will function properly or not. This way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and supply hundreds of different attributes to your visitors.
