Perl is a widespread language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages available since it supports the use of modules - compact parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
If you obtain a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules present on the cloud platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With each and every plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you'll find the complete list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you have to use in order to access them. In case you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will function flawlessly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your web hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you can include this attribute with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
