Perl is a widely used scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a specific process that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you're able to write only one line inside your script to have a module executed, rather than having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it is employed by numerous popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our hosting plans without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically through a cron job if your plan has this option. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you'll be able to use any of them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you want to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to add to your website demand a certain module, for example, you won't need to worry if they will run efficiently or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic site and supply plenty of characteristics to your targeted visitors.
