Perl is a well-known programming language, that is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is one of the most practical programming languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you will be able to include just one line of program code to call a specific module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and apps written in Perl with all of our cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform to make sure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You can run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your site, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file on regular intervals. In the event that the plan that you have bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you'll be able to include as many as you would like from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also have to make sure that the script file features the needed executable permissions. Using our shared plans, you are able to create a site with as many functions and features as you would like.
