Perl is an excellent programming language that's commonly used for setting up CGI scripts and various kinds of web-based apps. Among its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the performance of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be performed, you're able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for multiple purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used in addition to other programming languages like PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your package has this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website demand a certain module, for example, you do not need to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic site and offer hundreds of different options to your visitors.
