Perl is a powerful programming language that is regularly used for creating CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based applications. One of its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to do various tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, when five tasks have to be executed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for a number of 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 a lot more. It is ordinarily used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts that you need to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you don't need to worry whether they will run properly or not. In this way, you are able to build a dynamic website and supply countless features to your site visitors.
