Perl is a widely used scripting language which is considered to be one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a variety of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process which can be integrated into a script by simply calling them which means that you are able to write just a single line in your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports various other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it's employed by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
If you acquire a Linux shared web hosting from us, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you are able to employ in your scripts and you'll find the full list in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use to be able to access them. When you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can rest assured that it'll function correctly whatever the modules it requires 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 hosting plan does not come with cron jobs, you're able to include this attribute with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
