Perl is a popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - groups of commands for a specific task which can be included in a script by calling them which means that you can write a single line inside your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with various other languages and it features a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it is used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your plan has this feature. If not, you'll be able to include cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library in your script. In case third-party scripts that you want to add to your website require a certain module, for instance, you will not need to worry whether they will work properly or not. In this way, you'll be able to build a dynamic website and offer plenty of attributes to your website visitors.
