Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain task 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 have a whole module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it is used by a number of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan through us, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you will have access to over 3000 modules which you are able to use in your scripts and you will find the complete list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use to access them. Should you use any kind of script that you've downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it will work perfectly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
