Why is Perl a programming language of choice for many web developers?
Perl is a sought-after scripting language that is regarded as one of the most practical programming languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular job that can be included in a script by calling them which means that you are able to write just a single line inside your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the entire program code that is already a part of the module anyway. As Perl is compatible with many other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a particular app can do, it is used by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts with any of our shared web hosting
packages without any difficulties. You may even do this automatically by using a cron job when your package includes this attribute. If not, you can add cron jobs through the Upgrades area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules are present on our servers and you can use any 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 only have to include the path to our module library inside your script. If third-party scripts that you need to include in your website ask for a specific module, for example, you don't need to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you're able to make a dynamic site and offer numerous different functions to your targeted visitors.
