Perl is a popular programming language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages out there since it supports the use of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you time and effort and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you are able to include just one line of code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language most often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script are there every time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually through your website, or automatically via a cron job that will run a particular file regularly. If the package which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
