Perl is a popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to set up multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write just a single line within your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole program code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it's used by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Hosting

If you buy a hosting package through our company, you will be able to run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have numerous modules present on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you can find the entire list within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path which you have to use so as to access them. In case you use any script that you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can be sure that it will function flawlessly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.

Provided you choose to use a script which you've found online and it requires specific modules to be present on your server, you are able to take full advantage of our rich library which includes more than 3000 modules. Thus, you can be sure that any kind of Perl app that you generate or find on the Internet will work flawlessly on our end.
