Perl is a popular language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you're able to integrate just a single line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you obtain a cloud plan through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you will be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use to be able to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you'll be able to add this attribute with a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
