Perl is a widely used programming language, that is employed to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages these days since it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you will be able to include only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate lots of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform to ensure that all of the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You will be able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan that you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
