Why is Perl a language of choice for a lot of web developers?
Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most practical languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its support for modules - groups of commands for a specific task which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write only one line inside your script to get a module executed, rather than having the whole code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl supports many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it is employed by lots of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
If you obtain a Linux shared web hosting package
through us, you are able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem as we have a large number of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With every single plan, you will be given access to more than 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you will find the whole list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path which you have to use to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can be sure that it'll function flawlessly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you'll be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your hosting package does not include cron jobs, you will be able to add this feature with just a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
