Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you're able to add only one line of code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Website Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all our website hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script are there when you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a certain file regularly. In the event that the plan which you've ordered does not come with cron jobs included, you are able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you're able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
