Perl is a popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to create a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain process which can be included in a script by simply calling them i.e. you'll be able to write only one line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular application can do, it is employed by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy a Linux cloud hosting package
through us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have a lot of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each and every package, you'll get access to more than 3000 modules that you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the entire list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you need to use so as to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll work properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. If your hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you can add this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
