Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's considered to be one of the most useful languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a certain process that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you can write just one line inside your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of functions based on what a particular app can do, it's used by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
Perl Scripting in Shared Website Hosting
In case you buy a Linux shared website hosting package
through our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems because we have a lot of modules present on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With each plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to employ in your scripts and you will find the whole list within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you should use in order to gain access to them. When you use any script which you have downloaded from some third-party site, you can be sure that it will work perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .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 plan doesn't include cron jobs, you can include this option with a few clicks within the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
