Perl is a popular scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just one line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's employed by numerous well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you purchase a hosting plan through us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have numerous modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single package, you will be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you'll find the full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. In case you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll work flawlessly regardless of what modules it requires 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 given time interval. In case your hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with just a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
