Perl is a widespread scripting language that's regarded as one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you can write just one line in your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it is used by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this attribute. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you want to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you are able to build a dynamic website and supply hundreds of different attributes to your targeted visitors.
