Perl is a popular scripting language that's considered to be one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is the support for modules - sets of commands for a specific task which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write just a single line in your script to have a module executed, instead of having the whole program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it is used by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you acquire a Linux cloud hosting service from us, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are set up. With each and every plan, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the full list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use in order to access them. Should you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function flawlessly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. In case your website hosting package does not include cron jobs, you'll be able to include this feature with just a couple of clicks inside the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
