Perl is a powerful programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and a variety of web-based apps. One of its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to execute numerous tasks and to extend the efficiency of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, when five jobs should be performed, you can employ five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for many different purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used with other languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with any of our cloud web hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all the dependencies for a custom or a pre-made script are there every time you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually from your site, or automatically by using a cron job that will run a certain file on regular intervals. In case the package which you've ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you need through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to make sure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. Using our shared packages, you will be able to build a site with as many functions and features as you like.
