Perl is a popular scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular process which can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you'll be able to write only one 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 many other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific application can do, it's employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud website hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan has this option. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website require a particular module, for instance, you won't have to worry if they will run effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic website and supply numerous different options to your website visitors.
