Perl is a powerful programming language that's frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and various web-based applications. Among its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform various tasks and to enhance the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, if five jobs should be executed, you can use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules instead of including a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really convenient and it can be used for various purposes, so many companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Website Hosting

You are able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our Linux cloud website hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform to make sure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file regularly. In the event that the plan that you've selected does not come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. With our shared packages, you will be able to create a site with as many functions and features as you like.
