Perl is a very popular scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's 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 on the web is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write a single line inside your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with various other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a particular app can do, it's used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting
plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job if your package includes this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in 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 that you need to add to your site demand a particular module, for example, you do not have to worry whether they will work efficiently or not. In this way, you will be able to create a dynamic site and provide countless options to your visitors.
