Perl is a widespread language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical languages available as it supports the use of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you'll be able to add just a single line of code to call a given module rather than using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language often used for scripts, but it's been used to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and applications written in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom-made or a ready-made script will be there every time you need them. You can execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your site, or automatically via a cron job that will run a specific file on regular intervals. In case the plan which you've bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you are able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You also need to ensure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you'll be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you'd like.
