Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you're able to write just a single line in your script to get a module executed, rather than having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with various other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's used by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting packages without difficulty. You can also do this automatically through a cron job if your package includes this feature. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to add to your site require a particular module, for instance, you don't have to worry whether they will function efficiently or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic website and offer various features to your visitors.
