Perl is a very popular scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its compatibility with 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 just a single line inside your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it is employed by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting plans without difficulty. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use all of them with your scripts. The complete list is available in the Control Panel and when you wish 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 add to your website demand a particular module, for example, you will not have to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to build a dynamic site and supply countless attributes to your targeted visitors.
