Perl is a popular scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write only one line within your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with many other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our website hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan has this feature. If not, you're able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts that you want to add to your website ask for a certain module, for instance, you won't have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to make a dynamic website and provide countless features to your visitors.
