Perl is an efficient programming language which is widely used for generating CGI scripts as well as various web-based apps. One of its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to do various tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, in the event that five jobs have to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is really useful and it may be used for many different purposes, that's why many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting through our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you will have access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you can find a full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use in order to gain access to them. Should you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it will work perfectly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your web hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you can include this attribute with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
