Perl is a popular programming language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you will be able to add just one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your website demand a particular module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will run properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and offer plenty of attributes to your targeted visitors.
