Perl is a well-known scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl can be used with various other languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you can run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our web hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this option. If not, you're able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your website ask for a particular module, for example, you do not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. This way, you're able to create a dynamic site and provide countless features to your targeted visitors.
