Perl is an excellent programming language that is frequently used for creating CGI scripts along with various web-based apps. One of its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to execute a variety of tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, if five processess need to be executed, you are able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for many different purposes, that's why many companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting through our company, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you'll be able to use in your scripts and you will find a full list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use in order to access them. When you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function perfectly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your website hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you're able to add this option with a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
