Perl is a widespread language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you will be able to include only 1 line of code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The full list is available inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you want to include in your site ask for a specific module, for example, you do not have to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic Internet site and offer a huge selection of options to your targeted visitors.
