Perl is an excellent programming language which is frequently used for creating CGI scripts as well as different web-based apps. One of its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to perform various tasks and to enhance the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five processess should be executed, you can employ five lines of code to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for a variety of purposes, so a lot of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's ordinarily used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud web hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You can run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package which you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared plans, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
