Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write only one line within your script to have a module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it is used by a number of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our hosting packages without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan comes with this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. A complete list is available inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts that you want to include in your site demand a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will function properly or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer various functions to your targeted visitors.
