Perl is a powerful programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and also various web-based applications. One of its main pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to execute various tasks and to extend the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks have to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for many different 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 ordinarily used with other languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website require a certain module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will function properly or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and supply numerous different options to your website visitors.
