Perl is a sought-after scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a given application can do, it is used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

As Perl is installed on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting plans without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package comes with this option. If not, you are able to include cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be found on our servers and you'll be able to use them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and if you wish to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. When third-party scripts which you need to include in your website ask for a particular module, for example, you won't need to worry whether they will run properly or not. This way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and offer hundreds of different characteristics to your visitors.
