Perl is an effective programming language which is regularly used for creating CGI scripts along with a number of web-based applications. One of its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to execute various tasks and to enhance the performance of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, if five tasks need to be executed, you can use five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for multiple purposes, so a number of companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud web hosting through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With every single plan, you will be given access to over 3000 modules which you're able to employ in your scripts and you will find the entire list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use to be able to access them. Should you use any script that you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function correctly regardless of what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your website hosting plan does not include cron jobs, you can include this attribute with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
