Perl is a widespread scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write only one line inside your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it's used by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically via a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will work effectively or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of functions to your website visitors.
