Perl is a sought-after scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a particular task that 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 have an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with various other languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending 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, and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting

Provided you buy a shared web hosting through us, you can run Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have plenty of modules on the cloud hosting platform where all the shared accounts are generated. With every single package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you'll be able to use in your scripts and you can find the entire list inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel together with the path which you should use so as to access them. When you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from some third-party website, you can rest assured that it will function properly whatever the modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can create a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your hosting package does not include cron jobs, you'll be able to add this feature with a few clicks inside the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
