Perl is a widespread scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages out there is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain job which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports many other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it is employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud web hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan includes this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use 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 within your script. In case third-party scripts which you need to add to your website demand a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will work efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide a huge selection of options to your site visitors.
