Perl is a widespread scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process that can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you're able to write only one line within your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it is used by lots of well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

In case you get a cloud plan through us, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are set up. With each package, you will get access to more than 3000 modules that you're able to use in your scripts and you can find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel along with the path that you need to use to gain access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll work flawlessly whatever the modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
