Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a certain task that can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write only one line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl supports many other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's used by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you've purchased doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want through the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you'll be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.

In case you want to use a script which you've found online and it needs specific modules to to be available on the server, you will be able to reap the benefits of our vast library that includes more than 3000 modules.
