Perl is a widespread computer language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages available because it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites since you can add just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to add to your website demand a certain module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and offer plenty of features to your targeted visitors.
