Perl is a widespread computer language, that is used to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages nowadays because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you will be able to include only one line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with all our cloud hosting plans because we have a rich library of over 3000 modules present on our tailor-made cloud website hosting platform in order to make sure that all dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there any time you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually via your website, or automatically by using a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. In the event that the package that you have selected does not come with cron jobs included, you will be able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In addition, you have to ensure that the script file has the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you will be able to create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
