Perl is a very popular scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write just one line within your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you get a cloud web hosting through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With every single package, you'll have access to over 3000 modules that you are able to use in your scripts and you will find the whole list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you should use to be able to access them. When you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will run flawlessly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your web hosting plan doesn't feature cron jobs, you're able to include this option with just a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
