Perl is a popular scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is its support for modules - sets of commands for a certain job that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write only one line in your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a specific application can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide hundreds of different functions to your site visitors.
