Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you can integrate just a single line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with any of our cloud website hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom-made cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there whenever you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job that will run a specific file regularly. If the package that you've bought does not come with cron jobs included, you can easily add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file has the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
