Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its support for modules - sets of commands for a specific process which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you'll be able to write only one line within your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically via a cron job when your package comes with this attribute. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are offered on our servers and you will be able to use all of them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts which you need to include in your site require a particular module, for example, you do not have to worry if they will run properly or not. In this way, you are able to make a dynamic website and offer numerous different functions to your site visitors.
