Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you can include just one line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

Provided you get a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have plenty of modules on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to use to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will run flawlessly whatever the modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't come with cron jobs, you're able to add this option with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
