Perl is a widely used scripting language that is considered to be one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular job which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them i.e. you're able to write a single line within your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a specific application can do, it is employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud hosting platform where the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you'll be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you can find the entire list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use to be able to access them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function correctly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your web hosting plan does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
