Perl is an efficient programming language that is regularly used for creating CGI scripts along with a variety of web-based apps. Among its key pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five processess need to be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why many corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our cloud web hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there whenever you need them. You'll be able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In the event that the plan which you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition, you need to ensure that the script file features the right executable permissions. With our shared plans, you'll be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
