Perl is a well-known scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to create multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a particular task which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write just one line within your script to get a module executed, instead of having the whole code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with numerous other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a specific app can do, it's employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you can execute Perl/CGI scripts with all of our cloud hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job if your package comes with this attribute. If not, you can include cron jobs from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you will be able to use them with your scripts. The full list can be found inside the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. In case third-party scripts that you would like to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you won't need to worry whether they will function effectively or not. This way, you'll be able to make a dynamic Internet site and provide countless features to your visitors.
