Perl is a very popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific task that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you are able to write just one line within your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given app can do, it is used by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud website hosting plans without difficulty. You may even do this automatically through a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you'll be able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you wish to use any module, you just have to include the path to our module library in your script. If third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website ask for a specific module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will work properly or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer hundreds of different attributes to your visitors.
