Perl is an efficient programming language that is frequently used for making CGI scripts as well as different web-based apps. One of its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to perform numerous tasks and to increase the functionality of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five jobs should be executed, you're able to employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a number of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's commonly used along with other programming languages like PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Web Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all of our web hosting plans because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all dependencies for a custom or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You are able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a certain file on regular intervals. If the plan that you have obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file has the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you're able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
