Perl is an efficient programming language that's regularly used for setting up CGI scripts and various web-based applications. Among its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs have to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really useful and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's often used in addition to other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job if your plan comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you want to include in your site require a particular module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and offer plenty of attributes to your site visitors.
