Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you are able to write a single line inside your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl supports numerous other languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific app can do, it is employed by lots of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting
As Perl is installed on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to run Perl/CGI scripts with any of our cloud website hosting packages without difficulty. You can even do this automatically via a cron job when your package has this option. If not, you are able to add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Over 3000 Perl modules are accessible on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list can be found in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to add the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you need to add to your website demand a particular module, for instance, you will not have to worry if they will operate effectively or not. In this way, you're able to create a dynamic Internet site and supply numerous different functions to your visitors.
