Perl is an efficient programming language that is commonly used for generating CGI scripts and also different web-based apps. Among its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to do various tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, if five jobs should be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for a number of purposes, so a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used along with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting from our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have numerous modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you will find the whole list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to get access to them. In case you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will function flawlessly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your website hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you will be able to add this attribute with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
