Perl is a widespread computer language, which is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most effective languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your websites since you can add just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud hosting plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script are there any time you need them. You are able to execute a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. If the package which you have obtained doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you're able to build a website with as many functions and features as you would like.
