Perl is a widely used scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful programming languages on the web. 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 alternative languages on the internet is its support for modules - sets of commands for a particular process that can be included in a script by calling them i.e. you can write a single line in your script to have a module executed, rather than having the entire code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a given application can do, it's employed by many well-known companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.

In case you buy a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without any problems as we have a lot of modules present on the cloud platform where all of the shared accounts are generated. With every single plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules which you will be able to use in your scripts and you will find the whole list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel along with the path which you need to use in order to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it will run perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Any .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this attribute with a couple of clicks in the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
