Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular job that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you are able to write just a single line inside your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending on what a particular application can do, it is used by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically by using a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts which you would like to include in your site demand a specific module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will run effectively or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic Internet site and offer hundreds of different options to your website visitors.
