Perl is a well-known scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular job which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write just a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with a lot of other programming languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's used by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

Provided you purchase a Linux shared website hosting package through us, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you'll be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the full list in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you should use in order to get access to them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function correctly no matter what modules it needs 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 pre-set time interval. In case your website hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you are able to include this option with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
