Perl is an excellent programming language that is regularly used for making CGI scripts and also many different web-based apps. One of its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to do numerous tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five jobs should be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why many corporations have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you buy a cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules installed on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each and every package, you'll be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the whole list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use in order to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will work perfectly whatever the modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your website hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
