Perl is a well-known programming language, that is used to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a particular task. The modules can save you time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you will be able to add only 1 line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our cloud website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform to ensure that all dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan that you have acquired does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. With our shared packages, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
