Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as one of the most useful languages on the web. It's feature-rich and it's used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is the support for modules - groups of commands for a specific task that can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write just a single line within your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the whole program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with a lot of other languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a specific application can do, it is employed by many popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
As Perl is set up on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud hosting
packages without any difficulties. You can also do this automatically via a cron job when your plan includes this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs via the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you can use them with your scripts. The entire list is available inside the Control Panel and when you'd like to use any module, you just have to add the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts that you want to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you do not need to worry whether they will run efficiently or not. In this way, you'll be able to create a dynamic site and supply hundreds of different options to your targeted visitors.
