Perl is a popular scripting language that is considered to be one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages out there is the compatibility with modules - sets of commands for a certain task that can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you can write only one line in your script to get an entire module executed, rather than having the whole program code that is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it provides a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it's used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting

If you acquire a Linux shared website hosting from our company, you'll be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules present on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules that you're able to employ in your scripts and you will find the whole list in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel along with the path that you should use so as to get access to them. When you use any script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll function properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you can add this feature with just a couple of clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
