Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you can write just a single line in your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with many other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific application can do, it's used by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

Since Perl is installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our website hosting packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your plan comes with this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. A full 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 within your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website require a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry if they will run properly or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and offer numerous different characteristics to your visitors.
