Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the internet is the support for modules - groups of commands for a certain process which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you can write just a single line within your script to have a module executed, instead of having the whole program code that is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's employed by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting from us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every package, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you'll find a full list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use to gain access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll function properly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .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 plan doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
