Perl is an efficient programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and different web-based applications. One of its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are used to do multiple tasks and to enhance the functionality of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, when five jobs should be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than including hundreds of lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's generally used in addition to other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You're able to use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library of over 3000 modules installed on our custom-made cloud website hosting platform in order to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there when you need them. You'll be able to run a .pl file in two ways - either manually through your website, or automatically through a cron job which will run a specific file regularly. In case the package which you have bought doesn't come with cron jobs included, you can easily include as many as you need from the Upgrades menu within your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to make sure that the script file features the proper executable permissions. When you use our shared plans, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
