Perl is a very popular computer language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a specific task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you can integrate just a single line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create lots of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this option. If not, you will be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your site demand a specific module, for example, you won't have to worry whether they will function properly or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic website and offer a huge selection of attributes to your site visitors.
