Perl is an excellent programming language that's regularly used for creating CGI scripts as well as a variety of web-based applications. Among its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to perform multiple tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks have to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than including hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for a number of purposes, that's why a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

If you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting from us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have plenty of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you will get access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you can find the entire list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use in order to be able to access them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it will run properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your website hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you are able to add this option with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
