Perl is a widely used scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up multiple web-based applications 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 job that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you can write a single line within your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a particular app can do, it is employed by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared website hosting packages without difficulty. You may also do this automatically through a cron job when your plan includes this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you can use any of them with your scripts. A complete list can be found inside the Control Panel and if you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you need to add to your website ask for a specific module, for example, you don't have to worry whether they will run properly or not. This way, you will be able to make a dynamic site and provide a huge selection of functions to your targeted visitors.
