Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given application can do, it's used by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared web hosting plans without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you're able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you want to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you don't have to worry if they will function effectively or not. In this way, you will be able to build a dynamic site and provide countless options to your site visitors.
