Perl is a well-known computer language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you're able to add just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you are able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list is available inside the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site ask for a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will run effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and provide hundreds of different characteristics to your targeted visitors.

In case you choose to employ a script that you have found online and it needs specific modules to be present on your server, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our rich library which features more than 3000 modules. This way, you can rest assured that any type of Perl app that you generate or find on the web will perform perfectly on our end.
