Perl is an effective programming language which is regularly used for generating CGI scripts and a variety of 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 enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five tasks have to be executed, you can employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for various purposes, so a number of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your site ask for a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer countless characteristics to your visitors.
