Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the support for modules - sets of commands for a specific task which can be included in a script by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line in your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a particular application can do, it is used by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting packages without difficulty. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan comes with this feature. If not, you can add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. The entire list can be found in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you want to add to your website require a particular module, for example, you will not need to worry if they will work efficiently or not. This way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply hundreds of different functions to your targeted visitors.
